Parque Historico Punta Cuevas, Puerto Madryn

Take in scenic views of the Atlantic Ocean with a little bit of colonial history at Parque Historico Punta Cuevas. The park marks the first area colonized by a group of shipwrecked Welsh explorers in Patagonia, and wooden signs throughout the attraction explain the history. Walk down the wooden pier for panoramic views of the surrounding vista. This less touristed attraction has little in English, so take a phrase book along.

    It is a very nice place close to the city and the sea, you can visit walking, there is a new museum that is shaped, very well attended and with new material of the origins of the settlers.

    very nice place, to be able to see the caves where they lived the first Welsh is exciting, is a bit of history, worth a visit.

    July 28 marks the anniversary of the landing of the Welsh settlers on the coast of Chubut where there are events throughout the day, but basically at this point. If they go, they will see that there is a part that is considered sacred land mapuche, who were already part of our territory to reach the Welsh. A little-touted detail point to view sunrises or sunsets amazing minutes away from the city
