Monumento al Indio Tehuelche, Puerto Madryn

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. Plan my Puerto Madryn trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • It is a classic of the city. It is interesting because not many places there is a tribute to the native peoples and insurance which not in the best place in the city. It is complemented by the monument a Welsh woman who is located in the Centre giving account of this history of peaceful meeting in Patagonia and, in addition, claiming two minorities in its most important monuments (women and Indians). The view is beautiful, you can see the entire city and ride can be made by car, foot or bike.

  • From the monument to the Indian you can see the Gulf along with the city of Puerto Madryn. You can be walking, by car or bicycle. It is an accessible place, quiet walk without great difficulties. The hardest part is 200 metres before arriving, since it is a little climb, but nothing that cannot be made quiet way. The route goes bordering the sea, no place to sit, and several Inns. The view is fantastic, you can see the city, the docks and the sea. A perfect vantage point for photos.

  • Well. Beautiful place to go to take Matt to the afternoon, from where you can see the coast of Pto. Madryn. It is very difficult to get a good photo of the monument, there is so much traffic in the area.

  • A beautiful place to go to meet and take pictures of the city seen from the West. It is at a roundabout the monument so is best viewed from the sidewalk. When I arrived there was very nice because there were people running, families with pets and children.

  • Tehuelche natives on this side of the mountain range, were massacred by the Chilean Mapuche loncos today misnamed Mapuche.
