This is one of the cities on the Patagonian littoral area most visited by tourists from all over the world due to the wonderful natural proposals it presents.
Puerto Madryn gathers truly unique conditions. On the one hand, it possesses an interesting and significant historical value and; on the other hand, it features a well-developed urban center with modern buildings.
Touring around this marvelous city implies not missing certain spots. For example, the ruins of the first Welsh settlement located in Punta Cuevas. The most ancient housing units in Patagonia were raised there. At present, an exhibition center lies on this location where objects used by the colonists are on display and the history of the Indian and Welsh cultures is identified.
The monument to the Tehuelche Native is another attraction in Puerto Madryn. This site may be reached through the Indian’s Road, which borders the coastline between the dunes and the shore. Besides, from this geographical location, visitors may enjoy an excellent panoramic sight of the beaches, the industrial park and the entire city.
