El Puente de la Mujer (Woman’s Bridge) is an incredible work of modern architecture, located in the most modern neighborhood in the city of Buenos Aires, Puerto Madero.
This neighborhood was an active part of port development in the city. There were not only Argentine ships transporting raw materials to other provinces, but also huge and important European ships.
Back then, Argentina was supplier of grain, such as wheat, corn, barley and rice.
El Puente de la Mujer is a pedestrian bridge; it is 170m long and 6,20m wide. Its structure consists of 3 parts, 2 of which are fixed and 1 movable which is the biggest in size. It opens to allow yatchs and boats through.
This bridge was opened on December 20th 2001 and it is one of the most attractive touristic spots in the city not only for tourists but also for locals. At night, it is lit in such a way that captivates its visitor’s attention.
