Ponte Velha, Morretes

3.6
#3 of 11 in Sightseeing in Morretes
Bridge Tourist Spot
City landmark Ponte Velha, constructed in 1912 and extensively restored in 1975, crosses the Nhundiaquara River in the spot once used for gold panning. The bridge is close to the downtown area and serves up a bit of local history in a natural setting. Wide enough for the passage of only one vehicle at time, the bridge once stood as a symbol of regional wealth. Today this remnant of the past reminds visitors of the many changes and modern developments the country has gone through in the recent decades. Near the bridge you can find several restaurants (with outdoor seating overlooking the river), as well as a few souvenir shops and convenient general stores. Put Ponte Velha into our Morretes vacation builder to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Morretes.

  • Beautiful view of the porte. The bridge is a little Jewish by time, still retains your charm. You can get down under it to take pictures and get close to the river.

  • Beautiful place, historic centre. The bridge is narrow and the tourists walk share space with cars.

  • Very nice bridge over the river which bisects the city. Beautiful view yielded beautiful pictures. We stayed for a few hours but it was worth it.
