Puente de la Mujer, Buenos Aires

4.4
#12 of 231 in Sightseeing in Buenos Aires
Bridge Tourist Spot
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.

  • This place is just breath taking!! U have to be there to know how beautiful it is.
  • A beautiful bridge in Puerto Madero for walking across the river. Great spot for pictures. Usually very busy and sometimes you will see artists performing right on the bridge
  • Very nice bridge with river view and surrounded by different lovely shopping stores and restaurants
  • Very nice place. In the heart of the Puerto madero.
  • Puerto Madero is a nice break from the hustle and bustle of the city. It's really relaxing to just walk around and maybe eat there. The Puente de la Mujer is very pretty and nice to walk across. Unfortunately it had some graffiti on it this time. Hopefully they will fix that soon.

Where to stay in Buenos Aires
