Puente de la Mujer, Buenos Aires

4.4
#15 of 896 in Things to do in Buenos Aires
Proof that modern architecture can add value to a historic city, the sleek Puente de la Mujer spans dock 3 of Buenos Aires' port district. The "Woman's Bridge" can rotate up to 90 degrees in under two minutes, allowing water traffic to pass. Designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the pedestrian bridge's distinctive, asymmetrical white "needle" has become an icon of the city. Don't try to cross the bridge in high heels--its widely spaced slats have been known to claim the occasional unsuspecting shoe.

    Mandatory passage to that beautiful Puerto Madero, very beautiful place for photos, overlooking the river. Bridge in modern format. Gusty.

    The bridge, in addition to being one of the symbols of the Argentine city, is charming and yields good pictures. Schedule to visit the region in the morning and already enjoy for lunch in the food that makes up the Puerto Madero. Great ride!

    A beautiful bridge that frames the landscape, so beautiful in the daytime as at night where is lit, it's worth it for a few clicks.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires

Buenos Aires offers an impressive selection of budget-friendly and mid-range lodgings, as well as pricier, more luxurious options for visitors who don't mind splashing out. Good rooms are scattered across town, but your best bet for economical hostels remains San Telmo, a neighborhood on the edge of downtown. For boutique establishments and international five-star hotels, head to Palermo, Recoleta, or Puerto Madero, upscale neighborhoods drawing the majority of foreign visitors.
