"Welsh Town in Argentina" Trevelín by msocolin

Trevelín Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 42 photos

Trevelin is a small town located just 24 km away from Esquel. It was originally populated by Welsh immigrants coming from Puerto Madryn. The name Trevelin comes from the welsh words Tre: people and Velin: mill. When the welsh created Trevelin they became farmers, growing mainly wheat. Still today you can see many of their original houses and mills, and even hear surnames like Jones, Williams, Evans, Roberts, Hughes, Griffit, Ap Iwan, Underwood and Freeman among others.
After so many years, the town is still a town. The road that comes from Esquel then becomes the main street of Trevelin, and the only one with pavement. The rest of the streets are gravel ones, so be careful if you go by car.
Oh, and before you leave Trevelin don't forget to have a welsh tea at one of the tea houses of the city.
