Parque Historico Punta Cuevas, Puerto Madryn

(3.7/5 based on 95+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Parque Historico Punta Cuevas a centerpiece of your Puerto Madryn vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Puerto Madryn tour planner.

  • I was on catamaran that leaves from the port every day. A unique experience. Not to be missed. With great joy

  • I recommend visiting a day cleared a few minutes until the sun goes down. Although the historical part is interesting and looks quickly, the best are the views of the sea with the Sun is on the horizon.

  • Shocking place. Although not much that remains and can be seen, it is unthinkable to imagine how entire families with children arrived in 1865 and stayed to live there, in the middle of nowhere, without water and with an atmosphere so hostile. I suggest reading a little history and see the Museum before visiting the place (preferably at low tide).

  • Puerto Madryn visiting, you must come to see the coastline in this end of the Golfo Nuevo. You have to come here!
