Maua Bridge, Jaguarao

(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
A bridge which straddles the border between two countries, visiting Maua Bridge is a unique experience because of this. On one side, you have the Brazilian town of Jaguarão and on the other, you have the town of Rio Branco in Uruguay. Built between 1927 and 1930, it is architecturally interesting, retaining its structure and magnificence throughout the years. You can cross the bridge by foot taking in the beautiful scenery of the river. Enjoy delicious meat on the Uruguay side and peruse the free shops on the Brazilian side. Be sure to take photos in both countries! Make Maua Bridge part of your personalized Jaguarao itinerary using our Jaguarao vacation trip planner.

  • Built in 1930, is a very beautiful and picturesque location that tells a little of the history of the two countries. It is still possible to see what was left of the railway line passing through the Centre of the bridge. She is very photogenic, so worth trying to do pictures of both the Brazilian side as Uruguayan, mainly at dusk.

  • Beautiful architecture, easy access to both flat as drive, crossing to have access to the free shops within Uruguay. For what you're looking for a place to buy great choice.

  • The beautiful bridge that unites two Nations is fantastic. In fact, cross a border without car international comparison. Worth much check the freeshop Uruguayan side street.
