Puente Leonel Viera, La Barra

4.6
#2 of 25 in Things to do in Maldonado
Bridge Tourist Spot
Providing a free joyride over the creek Maldonado, Puente Leonel Viera seems like it was built simply for fun. Driving across the undulating bridge, which connects the posh beach resort town of La Barra with Punta del Este, may remind you of riding a roller-coaster--especially if you cross it with some speed. For something a little slower-paced here, try the little dock: a great spot for fishing. For Puente Leonel Viera and beyond, use our La Barra trip builder to get the most from your La Barra vacation.

  • Great architecture and very worthy to stop by and take some pictures. Pictures taken from La Barra to Punta del Este seem to have a better background
  • Go over this bridge fast it's like a ride at a amusement park
  • It is an interesting bridge. Since it is not far from Punta del Leste, it is a nice place to visit.
  • If you didn't already, try to cross it at 70kms/h
