Monumento al Indio Tehuelche, Puerto Madryn
(2.9/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • The monument is not really a big deal, but is located in a beautiful area of Puerto Madryn. It is worthwhile to go to this place, the typical picture is taken and then walk the area to the South.

  • In a city founded by immigrants bring the statue a symbol of local civilization never existed in the area. Artistically has no value nor manages to transcend as symbol or local landmark.
