Puente de la Barra Leonel Viera, Punta del Este
Categories: Bridges, Tourist Spots
Like two ribbons blowing in the wind, Puente de la Barra Leonel Viera remains one of the most curious suspension bridges in the world. The wavy twin bridges were designed by engineer Leonel Viera, with pre-stressed suspension cables embedded in the deck. The structure was originally envisioned as a single bridge, but heavy congestion forced the construction of a second bridge, built to separate the two directions of traffic. Cross the bridges by car or just appreciate the view from the banks on either end. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Punta del Este holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Puente de la Barra Leonel Viera and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

Originally was one, that was the symbol of the area, which appeared in the photos, which caused Tickle in the panza when one it circulated a little more fast of it normal. Already almost nobody remembers that it was one... as it is fixed in the visual memory of the people. The second bridge was progress and the need to speed up the transit. I can not come to Punta del ESTE for a few days and not go to rod bridges.show original

A 'wannabe different' silly bridge. A little dangerous, actually.
Lucia CasanovaSomething as representative of Punta del Este as "Fingers". The bridge was originally one single and is in itself, a jewel of engineering. Its creator left its mark marked to fire in place with this work. Over the years, the extension of the spa and the increase of visitors became necessary to make a second bridge to avoid bottlenecks in season. Much is work in this to make one identical to the original, and almost almost it succeeded! View, they do, but who were raised there and are accustomed to crossing it we recognize the difference... the new not gives you the same "tummy tickle" that gives the original when you cross it. There is no return. What if it is a fact, is that it is a must-see travel and which continues to be a major attraction of the place!show original
