Monumento al Indio Tehuelche, Puerto Madryn

3.6
#4 of 8 in Sightseeing in Puerto Madryn
Monument Landmark
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.

  • It would be good, to be "in tune", already changed the names of many places and streets in Patagonia, of q murdered them, tortured and violated their rights... J-rock, years ago giving turns with that. Nice panoramic view from there.

  • The monument is good but you can pass it without realizing. Even the signage is not good and not appear other immediate attractions to feel, really, is recognition of the Tehuelche people. They should add some information center, a small house of the Tehuelche culture... And, obviously, put, regulated and attended by descendants of the original peoples.

  • Place from where you divide a beautiful view of the Bay of Puerto Madryn, and some lovely sunsets.

  • It is the highest point of Puerto Madryn, from there you can see practically all of the golfo nuevo and is waiting for the place where the flag of the Welsh colony was locked to the first settlers in 1865 and giving the kickoff to the Patagonia that we know today.
