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.

  • Very beautiful scenery. I rented a car and visited various attractions that day, among them the puente Inca. It is no longer possible to access the top of the bridge, for security reasons, but the site yields spectacular photos.

  • An incredible experience, a very nice place to be appreciated, is on the side of the road, there's no admission charge, need to pay attention when you're passing by car, because you may end up passing unnoticed by location. Worth a stop to take pictures.

  • Curious formation carved by human hands and by nature over time. Bridge built by the Incas with your ingenuity of the time. On top was a hotel that was destroyed by earthquakes. The water of thaw, with material was deposited on rocks and buildings, resulting in this beautiful formation. worth the stop. Around has handicraft market and shops.
