Puente de la Mujer, Buenos Aires

4.4
Proof that modern architecture can add value to a historic city, the sleek Puente de la Mujer spans dock 3 of Buenos Aires' port district. The "Woman's Bridge" can rotate up to 90 degrees in under two minutes, allowing water traffic to pass. Designed by renowned Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava, the pedestrian bridge's distinctive, asymmetrical white "needle" has become an icon of the city. Don't try to cross the bridge in high heels--its widely spaced slats have been known to claim the occasional unsuspecting shoe. Put Puente de la Mujer into our Buenos Aires trip planning site and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • We happened across this bridge as we strolled back to our hotel from the Reservation Ecological. There was no commemorative plaque that I could see. No mention of the 'disappeared'. But I was pleased ...  more »
  • Fun and pretty area around the bridge. You can definitely leave this area off your must see list in Buenos Aires if you are short on time.  more »

  • A unique bridge fun to cross. There are ship museums and a lot of nice restaurants nearby.
  • The tour guide told us about the similarities in the architecture of the bridge by the architect Santiago Calatrava.Apparently the bridge is in the shape of a woman performing tango. I dint feel so personally.
  • Very inspiring. Modern structure along with ancient architecture. A mind-easing place.
  • Beautiful bridge in an urban renewal zone that attracts lots of locals to walk along both sides of the old harbor. Bridge stands out as a striking piece of art and architecture while being 100 percent functional as a pedestrian foot bridge connecting the two sides of the harbor.
  • It's a nice bridge. We found it very useful to get from one side of the water to the other. We noticed people walking on the other side & we wanted to as well. This bridge served it's purpose 100% and we crossed the water with ease. We also noticed other people utilising it to cross the water, many people in fact used it with abandonment! I wish other cities would have these bridges
