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.
