Monumento al Indio Tehuelche, Puerto Madryn

(2.9/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web)
Discover the history behind an unexpected cooperation between Welsh immigrants and indigenous Tehuelche people at Monumento al Indio Tehuelche. Built to commemorate the good relationship between the two groups--dating back to the arrival of the Welsh in 1865--the monument depicts a Tehuelche warrior brandishing a spear and gazing out to sea, atop a pile of rocks symbolizing the excavation that took place in the nearby cliffs. Join the warrior in surveying the ocean, and ponder how he must have felt when the first Welsh ships arrived.

  • 4 km from the Center stands the monument to the Tehuelche Indian. The view of the Gulf from this point is very cute. Within the city, it is one of the points of interest along the ecocenter located only a few blocks from the monument.

  • The monument to the Tehuelche Indian Luis Perlotti 1965 work of the sculptor is located at Cape Punta Cuevas of the golfo nuevo, South of Puerto Madryn, where in July 1865, landing the first contingent of Welsh and was named it Punta Cuevas Historical Park. The Museum of the landing is too. Also from the location of the monument is us presents a view fantastic from the city of Puerto Madryn. Worth knowing and appreciating this tremendous panoramic view.
