Puente del Inca, Las Cuevas

(4.7/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
See the awe-inspiring geological formation at Puente del Inca, a naturally formed bridge that spans the Vacas river. Scientists remain unsure as to how the bridge formed, but they believe it was a combination of ice forming over the river and landslides from above. Walk around the site and enjoy the view, as well as the ancient hotel built into the wall. Alongside the bridge sits a market where you can buy local handmade goods and minerals found in the area. Put Puente del Inca into our Las Cuevas itinerary maker and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Although it is a place for these only a couple of hours or passing, it is also a place that attracts you, go with patience always is crowded.

  • Bring me a disappointment. I expected another thing. All very precarious, or if you want you you can approach. I didn't

  • He bridge of the Inca is a stop forced if going to the caves or to the border with Chile from Mendoza by the route 7. There is located an old place of waters thermal that currently not this enabled and is only an attraction tourist to see from the side of opposite. There's not much to do, but it is good to do a small scale to take pictures and buy some souvenirs. They also sell handicrafts and rare stones. There is an abandoned route and old train station.

  • Stop forced when it passes the road of high mountain. I was on several occasions, I saw it in summer and snowy winter. It is always nice to be there awhile.
