While this is a very unique bridge that they made another one to make each one way it is worth a drive, especially if the driver goes fast over the bumps.

We were in town on a cruise, and some ex-pats adopted us for the day, took us out to lunch. The drove us all over in their cute little Peugeot convertible, and this included going over this bridge very fast. Wheeee!

The Puente Leonel Viera is quite an extraordinary bridge that can be found in La Barra, Maldonado. Travelling along it, though very shortlived is a bit fun....going up and down. Quite a unique architecture!

This is a distinctive bridge in Punta. If you drive faster you have the sensation that you are in a roller coaster.

It was very fun to pass by this bridge, also, the modern and classical combination seen in the local architecture is stunning. Definitely a nice place, to walk around, take pictures and off course, to drive by.

This is a very unusual bridge. I've never seen one like this. Be very careful with your speed, if entering very fast you could take off.

Rather short bridge but due to its unusual form a definite must-see. Passed the bridge a couple of times on a local bus, definitely fun. PS: Go to Playa Bonita for a good angle if you wanna take pics.
