About Welsh Patagonia

The History of Welsh Patagonia

From the failed attempt to preserve the Welsh language in North America to the Ysgol y Cwm School – Welsh Patagonia is truly a place of wonder, of emotion and of endurance! 

It’s existence is born from the hardship in Wales in the middle of the 19th century and is an unique part of the world to this day, built from the pride, determination and we could say stubbornness of the Welsh people.

The original settlers who arrived on the Mimosa were sold a paradise.  What they encountered was arriving in deserted area of Argentina in the middle of Winter 1865.  The fact that we today we can meet the Jones’, Evans’ and Hughes’ in a town called Trevelin (translated from Welsh: Town of the Mill) is an unique and unforgettable experience.

Welsh Patagonia Destinaitons

When the Welsh arrived in 1865 there was nothing!  No villages, towns, cities.  The settlements that exist today are ones primarily built by the Welsh over a period of approximately 40 years from this date.  

During this time the Welsh founded Puerto Madryn , Rawson, Trelew, Gaiman, Dolavon, Esquel, Trevelin.  The Welsh were also a major influence in the founding of the cities of Comodoro Rivadavia & Sarmiento in the south of the Chubut province.

Our feedback speaks for itself!

“The holiday experience of a lifetime: unforgettable! The Welsh aspects of the tour were exceptional – seeing the enthusiasm of the children was humbling”​
