Trelew is located 50 kms south of Puerto Madryn and is the most populated city of the region as well as a great cultural centre. The name comes from joining two Welsh words Tre  (means town) and "Lew" (for Lewis) which when put together make "The town of Lewis". This Celtic name is a tribute to Lewis Jones, one of the first Welsh settlers arriving at these lands. The Celtic origin of the first Welsh immigrants left its mark in this picturesque town. The culture and traditions of Wales are prevalant in the city as well as there being more than 30 chapels, many of which are still standing.

The regional museum, is a great place to visit to find out more about the history of the town with many objects related to the Welsh immigration days, documents and testimonies of these first settlers relationship with the Tehuelches aborigines who were the original inhabitants of this part of Patagonia
