Valdes Peninsula

On shores of the Atlantic Ocean, 77 kilometres away from Puerto Madryn City, this amazing Natural Reserve can be found, covering an area of 360,000 hectares. Due to the rich variety of animal species that inhabit here, it was listed as a “World Heritage Site” by UNESCO.


Animals are the only lords and masters in this area. Fur seals, elephant seals, birds and penguins are some of them. In the entrance of the Natural Reserve, the F. Ameghino Interpretation Centre can be found.


There, it is possible to gain information on which places to visit, general characteristics and geography of such places as well as information on flora, fauna and history.

Puerto Madryn’s History

The first conquerors to arrive at the small settlement were Edwin Roberts, Lewis Jones, and the Captain sir Love Jones Perry from Madryn estate in Arfon. Therefore, the place was named after such estate. 


By the year 1865 already thirty welsh immigrants had arrived to this small town. Miners, carpenters, doctors, cobblers, and tailors among others came with the intention of staying here for good. Nevertheless, due to the lack of drinkable water in the area, they left.


Their stay here was not pleasant whatsoever and hence it was short. By the end of that same year they moved to Chubut Valley where major changes took place.


In the year 1908, twenty years after the railway system was built, fishing activities began. Official institutions and businesses were largely responsible for the birth of many more neighbourhoods.


Nowadays, fishing industry, processing businesses and tourism are Puerto Madryn’s main features and major activities.
