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.

  • Puerto Madero is paid for things to see but which most stands out is perhaps this bridge, by its design, its grandeur and representing. It must be atravezarlo and take photos from every angle, the same is going to be very well in pictures, as any woman.

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.
