Ponte Velha, Morretes

(3.7/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Old iron bridge that crosses the Nhundiaquara River, right in the Center gives the small town of Morretes. Iron bridge, with catwalk for pedestrians and passing for one car at a time. The view from the top gives the bridge is beautiful.

  • A bridge apart from beautiful yet yields beautiful pictures. Stay right in the Centre of the city and serves as a point of reference, several good restaurants nearby.] Also near has a crafts fair, highlighting the bullets of ginger.

  • Crossing that bridge is history, although I think this time, leave it as passing pedestrians, cyclists and build another that supports the passage of two cars at the same time.
