This is a monument to the many Welsh settlers who came to Patagonia. The inscriptions are in Spanish, which unfortunately, we do not speak. Thus it was hard to know more.

Interesting history
Mar 2020 • Friends
I had read before we went to Argentina that a number of Welsh people, farmers I believe, left Great Britain to make a new life on the other side of the world. This itself is fascinating and they clearly made sufficient an impact to have their journey and contribution to Argentina recognised. The monument is not gigantic but if you are taking a stroll along the promenade it is worthwhile stopping to have a look.

This monument is dedicated to the Welsh Pioneer who first came to this area. Since the inscriptions are not in English it is pretty hard to tell much.

Monument to the original Welsh settlers of Patagonia. Right along the water front. Worth a picture as you walk down to the wood carvings further down the waterfront.

We were on a cruise and just walked the street next to the ship. It is a monument to the Walsh people. Didn't seem that great, but we are not into the history of the area.

Nothing in English

Yes, it is a monument although not so monumental. There is nothing in English (no reason their should be) but the upshot is that I could not glean any info about what the monument is about.

Does it's job

I was sat in the bar opposite after arriving in town late, and noticed the Welsh flag on the monument. Next morning we had a good look and became more aware of the stories of the Welsh settlers, so the monument performed it's task. It daylight, it is quite striking and a useful landmark in the town. Worth a close look.

It is surprising to find this prominent Sesquicentenial (150 years) monument on the foreshore to early Welsh settlers who were helped with food and survival techniques by the local Theuelche Indians. Shame to see it fenced like it is, but maybe they had to protect it from whatever. The long boardwalk along nine sections of beach is good if you want to stretch your legs.Lots of bars along here too.

Fascinating monument

Apart from seeing this at Port Madryn to celebrate the arrival of the Welsh n the Mimosa from Liverpool UK in 1865 we went to the Welsh towns Gaiman & Trelew which were fascinating
