Has an amain view of the canal from above, along with the panramic view of Calzada de Amador, wich is also amazingly cool. At night you can see the lights of the ship that are waiting to cross the canal. Looks like millons fireflies.

I've looked at this bridge from many angles and distances. These old iron bridges with a truss design are so beautiful and strong you can tell it could stand the worst of events.

It was great to see this awesome bridge from our ship (the ms Zuiderdam) as it went underneath the Bridge of the Americas when we were transiting the Panama Canal. Got great pictures!

Great, if moving views of the approaches to the Panama Canal locks and the harbour - you cannot be a pedestrian on the bridge.

Old and is under maintenance. I was afraid to go thru. Should be a place to stop and look at the view I could not find one.

Worth a drive over if your in the area. The guide/driver was able to go up and over and back quickly and offer some information about it.

Well, what can I say? It's a bridge. Our guide took us over it and told us about it. To get the full feel and appreciate the architecture it is best to view it from a distance.

the taxi drivers know how to make a circle to cross over, go around and come back right away - without traffic will take 5 minutes.
