Trelew is where the Welsh immigrants came to settle in the Patagonia in the late 1800's. Trelew has nice plazas, parks, a lagoon, antique buildings and a good museum to enjoy. Trelew is the hub of wool processing in Argentina and maybe once the home of dinosaurs. Trelew is (by bus) 1hr south from Puerto Madryn and 4hrs 15mins north from Comodoro Rivadavia.

Egidio Feruglio Museum

Egidio Feruglio Paleontological Museum (museum of natural science) is an interesting place to visit in Trelew. Here you can see fossils, dinosaurs, skeletons and many more findings and discoveries from the region. There is also the Regional Museum Pueblo de Luis located inside the antique train station very near to the science museum.

Chiquichano Lagoon

Chiquichano Lagoon is a nice peaceful place to visit in central Trelew. A natural reserve that you can sit beside or walk around and some birdlife to see.

Plaza & Buildings

Plaza Independencia is the main plaza where you will find the church Parroquia Maria Auxiliadora and a few monuments. Possibly one of the best antique buildings in Trelew is the National Bank of Argentina building on 25 de Mayo 2 (street), 2 blocks from Plaza Independencia.

Tea In Gaiman

Gaiman is a small town near Trelew famous for it's Welsh tea houses. Take a local bus from the Trelew bus station to get to Gaiman. There is not that much to see in Gaiman apart from the old train station which is now a regional museum and maybe the river, the park and the church.

My Hostel & Hotel Reviews for Trelew / Gaiman, Argentina:

Hotel Touring Club, Trelew, Argentina - Large Photo
Hotel Touring Club, Trelew, Argentina (November 2021 - 2 nights) - An old hotel and building with a lot of character but maybe it is time to upgrade the rooms. The single bed is past its use by date, a little too old and sunken. A room for 1 person for $23USD with an outside patio overlooking the street, that's the best part. Yes there is hot water but I wasn't given a tv remote control. Wifi though and a small breakfast included. The hotel has a restaurant but my lunch was small and not good value, will eat elsewhere from now on. Located in the center close to everything. Take it or leave it. That's Hotel Touring Club in Trelew for you.
