Puente de la Mujer

Puente de la Mujer (Puerto Madero district, Buenos Aires) – Spanish for “Women’s Bridge”, this is a rotating footbridge located at the Puerto Madero district of the city (inaugurated in 2001, and designed by Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava).

Once the home of the city’s ports, the Puerto Madero area undertook a massive revitalization in the 1990’s after years of neglect. It is now has some of the city’s best restaurants and nightclubs. The Puente de la Mujer serves as a walkway between the two sides, as well as a termination point for the main city axis which runs through the Palacio del Congreso and the Casa Rosada (President’s house).
