  • It is a nice option to make way to Punta Tombo, is a town steeped in history, with its famous tea houses, the tunnel of the abandoned railroad that is like a museum that has all the history of as this Welsh colony was built. It really is to visit and spend an afternoon.

  • Again in Gaiman being a Welsh colony there are some ancient houses and churches also can take the you with delicious cakes, there is a House of you famous because it was visited by lady Di and an old tunnel where the train passed also has a beautiful coastal walk to Matt with cakes.

  • They took us to this village in the same excursion to Punta Tombo. I thought it was a village with a very nice story but nothing to do. Of course do not enter to tea because it seemed to us an abusive price and we do not come to Argentina to take Welsh tea. It seems to us that it is completely dispensable in the tour and for us it has been a big time loss. In the village a part of tea there is nothing else to do.
