Parque Historico Punta Cuevas, Puerto Madryn

3.7
#5 of 8 in Sightseeing in Puerto Madryn
Landmark Tourist Spot
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 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.
