Puente del Inca, Las Cuevas

4.4
#4 of 18 in Nature in Province of Mendoza
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.

    Beautiful place to see both with snow as without. Already not you can get to it by danger of collapse. There is way to Aconcagua and Los Penitentes. All places of interest in the area are accessible by the same route. Free of charge.

    It must have been good in times where you could walk, it now is far, you have bars on their windows, if one is not going to another attraction in the area is not worth. Seen from afar, it is a Persian market and is not even explained that it was.

    The place is filled with stories and passages marked up for the history of humanity, because it was a place that the English researcher Charles Darwin visited. The local legend about the Church (building) that stayed intact after an avalanche. Recommend a visit.
