This is an important piece of the history of then Welsh settlers in Patagonia. Beautiful setting and many interesting artefacts, documents and photographs. The owner Mervyn Evans is a direct descendent of one of the first Welsh settlers in the region . He is a larger than life character and an extremely talented engineer, pilot, etc etc. He talks at great length, in spanish, about the history of the Welsh community, the growth of the milling business and the mill itself. Unfortunately his history is not entirely accurate and has numerous derogatory comments about England and the English. Worse followed when he launched into enthusiastic praise for David Irving, the thoroughly discredited " historian" who has served time in prison for his holocaust denial writings. A great pity that such an important part of the remarkable history of the Welsh in Patagonia should be marred by the extreme rantings of Mr Evans.…

Located in a place of outstanding beauty, the mill captures the history of Patagonia. The mill itself is still in good working order and is a beautiful wood design. Next to the main milling room they have gathered a range of artefacts which crystallise the history of the mill and community. Mervyn is a charismatic host & will show you his home-built two seater aeroplane and single seat glider. They have some vintage Ford cars too. One reviewer on Tripadvisor has commented negatively about Mervyn’s commentary about the history of the Welsh in Patagonia. The reviewer shows a dreadful ignorance of history and would do well to read a bit. Mervyn outlines the discrimination of the Victorian British state well, which resulted in an emigration of a few thousand Welsh to Patagonia to escape religious and linguistic/cultural persecution. The mill is a wonderful place to visit - not to be missed…

Tour started out fine. Then some how owner managed to veer off on a whole lot of recesist remarks regarding the halacaust, as well as an erroneous history of Wales. Unpleasant experience!!!

Explains the founding of the town by Welsh settlers at the end of the eighteenth century. Well worth an hour.
