Monumento al Indio Tehuelche, Puerto Madryn

(2.9/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • If Madryn and not visits where arrived the Welsh visited nothing, it is based on the story and essentially the only meeting Pacific between two cultures that today maintain that tradition (Tehuelches and Welsh) all the July 25 made the feast of the encounter.

  • The monument is nice, but in reality does not correspond to the propaganda that made him. Appears as one of the points of interest. The only way to get from the Center is walking, already their and there is collective. When arrive only found a monument, or where sit you, nor where taking something, or where read slgo of the history. The monument in itself is good.
