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.

  • Vantage point to enjoy after a long journey that can be on the beach enjoying the beautiful scenery. Not miss the tour of the caves where the first settlers stayed to arrive in the country.

  • 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.
