Trevelin is a small town in Argentine Patagonia.
Trevelin is associated with the first Welsh settlers in the area. First they got to Esquel, that flourishing town, 20km away, and then they discovered the then fertile area of the Percy river valley.
There is a first rate late-19th/early-20th century Welsh museum in which many Argentinians and Chileans take a lively interest, and of which they are proud to be associated.
There are Welsh tea shops and all sorts of memorabilia associated with the original Welsh presence.
The Chilean border is quite nearby, and many cross here to renew their Argentine visas after three Months. Their destination in Chile is the delightful small town of Feutaleufu, head of that Chilean department of 40,000 people.
