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.

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.
