Puente Leonel Viera, La Barra

(4.6/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • When you get out of Punta, discovers this bridge with this different design, one more surprise. Short but original. After crossing-stop right there and so you can take pictures of the bridge, its curves or better its waves.

  • Beautiful place to visit, a bridge as there are few and a splendid view. There is a bridge of sport fishing on the side from which to enjoy the calm of the river and appreciate the peace and quiet of nature

  • It is an interesting bridge. Since it is not far from Punta del Leste, it is a nice place to visit.
  • The most crazy in the world
  • A 'wannabe different' silly bridge. A little dangerous, actually.
  • It represents Punta del Este

  • Excellent book, an icon of the bar, ideal for shooting amazing with red sunsets with the profile of the bridges cut against the sky. The entire environment is lovely.
