Puente de la Mujer, Buenos Aires

(4.4/5 based on 4,600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Never anything more successful in their name women's bridge. Tribute to all the women of Argentina and the world. Beautiful place. Do not miss it.

  • The bridge of the woman is a point photo inevitable in a visit to Buenos Aires. I recommend visiting at night after a hike by Puerto Madero. Recommended for tourists and couples.

  • Interesante obra de arquitectura. Lindo paseo.
  • Awesome structure and beautiful view of Puerto Madero. Nice tip: Best place in BsAs for pokemon go. ;)
  • I would say that it is mandatory to pass on it for those who visit Puerto Madeiro, because it is impossible to walk around the region without noticing this beautiful bridge that refers to a woman dancing tango. I found it more beautiful at night, when it is illuminated, with the illumination of the walk and the buildings in the background.
  • Awesome modern bridge in Puerto Modero Waterfront section of Buenos Aires.
  • It was great. A lot of tourists and local. It's a place people gather to enjoy each other and the weather. I saw people running, walking their dogs, kids skating, Pokemon catching. Loads of restaurants and one or two gift shop.
