This quaint and charming town appears to have been arrested in time: streets with irrigation ditches watering trees not native to Patagonia, and buildings brought in from faraway lands - such as chapels constructed by the Welsh upon arriving to Patagonia in the 19th century. Added to this seemingly age-old land, there are customs that have been brought into this hamlet from afar: such as the traditional Welsh tea, prepared according to ancient customs that give it a unique flavor and perfume; all accompanied by delicious cake. One of Gaiman’s most prominent visitors came to this region of Patagonia in 1995: Lady Diana, Princess of Wales, was there to enjoy a leisurely 5 o’clock tea.
After you have enjoyed the Welsh tea and cake, you will leave Gaiman feeling as though you have truly had a little taste of Wales, in what has become over time one of the most important Welsh communities in the world outside of the UK.
