    It is one of the 8 ferry bridges remaining in the world. Opened in 1914 and closed in 1960, it is a historical bridge. This remodeling, it seems that at any time to reinaugurarán. This on the riachuelo, more specifically in the mouth and connects Isla Maciel (Avellaneda) of this last quarter. In his time who ran it took about 1 minute to cross from shore to shore.

    It is worth closer to this bridge when you are going to walk through the neighborhood of la boca, not only must stay on path that if day night not recommended it. Belongs to the past of the old port and the design is very interesting, it should be of the most ancient in the world and a pretty postcard
