Monumento al Indio Tehuelche, Puerto Madryn

(3.6/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Apart from the view of Puerto Madryn and the Bay is just a nice walk or the purpose of daily jogging.

  • Stroll along the waterfront in Pto Madryn you find with this quaint monument. To take a few pictures and continue, it is no big deal... but it is in a very nice area and overlooking all Madryn. Very close to the Ecocenter.
