In addition to having a significant historical legacy for Patagonia, the City of Puerto Madryn is a booming urban center with modern buildings.
The search for the past refers us to the ruins of the first Welsh settlement, located in Punta Cuevas. The most ancient houses in Patagonia were built in this site. Today, an exhibition center stands there and displays objects which would belong to the colonists and tell visitors the history of the Indian and Welsh cultures.
Three kilometers away, along the Camino del Indio (Indian's Way), between the dunes and the coast, the monument to the Tehuelche Indian is reached. From there, a beautiful panoramic view of the city, the beaches and the industrial park may be appreciated.
Sunset is the ideal moment to visit Ecocentro Puerto Madryn, only 5 minutes from the city and opposite the sea.
The building, whose architectural style reminds us of the Welsh immigrants, is strategically located on a cliff and looks like a large vantage point into the sea. But not only because it allows visitors to behold it from the large windows but also because each room of the venue shows something about the fascinating sea world.
In order to learn more about this interesting undertaking, I was being expected by María Elena Lizurume, who is in charge of cultural programs. First, she commented that the Ecocentro was inaugurated in 2000 and that it was created as a result of the interests of a group of naturalists and scientists tightly related to the Valdés Peninsula area.
