Highlight bridge that is in the heart of Puerto Madero. Best to go at night so you can see the bridge. A postcard spot, but nothing too special.

I saw this from afar and had no idea what it was, because the design was so sleek and unique. I walked closer and realized it was a footbridge, and it's gorgeous -- great design. The name means "woman's bridge," and it was inspired by the streets in the Puerto Madero area that are named after women.

Located in the modern area of Porto Madero , the Calatrava pedestrian bridge ,adds extra beauty at the whole picture with the tall buildings build on the river . It's worth to pay a visit because its in a short distance from the walk with all restaurants and coffe shops . Some old navy ships are on the bank of... More

When renovating and developing the Puerto Madero neighborhood, one of the main difficulties was the public access to the area. As a solution, the fantastic Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed a rotating pedestrian bridge (a cantilever spar cable-stayed bridge type), connecting both sides of the channel and allowing the passage of vessels. The assimetrical arrangement resulted in the awesome "Women's... More

Basically its just a bridge. However it was a good way to waste a day and go on a nice walk. The marina area around the bridge is lively and full of restaurants. Prehaps it is slightly more glamorous at night, but i had no intentions of walking around Buenos Aires on my own at night.

A lovely walk in this area for pictures at night. A nice evening for dinner and a stroll to enjoy the lights and sounds of Buenos Aires. During the day, again, great photo opporutnities, good restaurants around and the full feel of being in Buenos Aires.

Indeed it is a wonder for one's eyes ! The light and modern drawing from Santiago is excelled by the use of white concrete for this futuristic bridge . But... The final result could only be made real by the introduction of civil engineering and stressed concrete . A superb result !

We wanted to see how the old port/industrial area has been developed in BA - similar to many other developments in big cities around the world but the pedestrian bridge does give it a unique look and feel - a wonderful addition and functional as well. It was completed in 2001. We couldn't see why it has been called "the... More

It's nice to visit day or night, but if you are a fan of city lights, you should do that after having dinner in Puerto Madero. It's a pretty bridge, but don't create too much expectation.

This attraction compliments Puerto Madero along with the Argentine Ship Fragata Sarimento. You can take a nice walk across the bridge to visit the antique ship. You may also run into naval officers while walking across the bridge. I ran into one that was quite friendly and willing to take a photo. I haven't visited the Puerto Madero at night... More

Staying in Puerto Madero

Neighborhood Profile
Puerto Madero
From its refurbished red brick buildings and port cranes to its modern skyscrapers and luxurious apartment buildings, Puerto Madero is the perfect combination of old and new. The river provides a quiet, relaxing atmosphere that contrasts with the hustle and bustle of heavy traffic just blocks away. Across the river, flanked by skyscrapers, are beautiful parks and quiet streets that make this neighborhood a unique destination in a city as busy as Buenos Aires. The restaurants, bars, and nightclubs on the docks make it a prime spot for nights out and have come to symbolize this area. Puerto Madero is even more striking after dark, when the lights from the docks and skyscrapers glow against the night sky.
