Cross Puerto Madero's Iconic Bridge: Puente de la Mujer ("Woman's Bridge”)
Location: Dock 3, Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires.
This unique landmark in the city is a rotating footbridge that is extremely popular because of the fact that is able to swing 90 degrees in order to allow water traffic to pass.
Designed by the Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, it is said to represent the image of a couple dancing tango.
It also marks the heart of Puerto Madero district, with some of the most popular restaurants and bars nearby.
We highly recommend you to cross it during the day and also at night, as you will see the city lights and the landscape will be completely different.
Just on the west side of the bridge, you will find a museum ship, ARA President Sarmiento, built in 1897. Used as a training ship, now it can be visited.
