Puente de la Mujer, Buenos Aires

4.4
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. Put Puente de la Mujer into our Buenos Aires trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • I didn't find it beautiful, but it is very striking; I'm sure people come just to see the unusual shape and take pictures (I certainly did).  more »
  • Very beautiful bridge, icon of the revitalization of the area of Puerto Madero. The night is very well lit and full of tourists.

  • The elegant and minimalist architecture of Calatrava is worth admiring in this bridge, cross it is a quiet plan that allows exit from hustle and bustle of other tourist places!

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.
