Argentina: Gaiman

The small town of Gaiman in the province of Chubut was established by the Welsh settlers and a lot of places in town are still welsh in character and looks. Welsh is still spoken here, many signs are in Welsh, the red dragon images are everywhere. Also, there are several traditional Welsh tea houses scattered around the central square, as well as old churches. A couple museums are also dedicated to the history of Welsh in Argentina. The Welsh arrived here in 1865 on the Mimosa sailboat, looking to establish New Wales on some virgin uninhabited lands.
