Puente Grau, Arequipa
(3.8/5 based on 100+ reviews on the web)
A rocky river rushes under the elegant stone arches of Puente Grau, while snow-capped mountains serve as a backdrop. Designed by architects Juan Rodriguez and Manuel H. Prado, the bridge was constructed in 1884. While modern infrastructure has developed around it, the bridge remains a timeless landmark on the Arequipa horizon. Stop to snap your picture here, and then tour the nearby neighborhood for more historic architecture. Use our Arequipa tourist route planner to add Puente Grau and other attractions to your Arequipa vacation plans.

  • From the bridge Grau is an incredible view towards the city and the Misti volcano. You can take pictures that surely will be unique. The bridge is not at odds with the architecture of the place. Good spot for a walk
