Women's Bridge (Puente de la Mujer)

This unique bridge is a symbol of Buenos Aires’ Puerto Madero neighborhood and is a great setting for photography and sunsets.  

Admire the unique architecture of Women's Bridge (Puente de la Mujer). When you are on the bridge, get your camera ready to capture a classic image of Buenos Aires and enjoy picturesque sunsets over the city rooftops. The pedestrian bridge crosses the water at Dock Three of Puerto Madero, one of the city’s most modern neighborhoods. 

Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava designed the bridge to evoke a couple dancing the tango. Stand back and imagine a man embracing a woman, who is leaning back horizontally in a traditional tango pose. The name Women’s Bridge refers to both the female dancer and the neighborhood street names, all honoring important women from Argentine history. 

Whether standing at either side of the bridge or in the middle, you’ll have great photo opportunities. The contemporary design provides a nice contrast with Puerto Madero’s refurbished redbrick warehouses and the imposing Ministry of Defense building in the background. Come in the evening to watch as the sun sets behind Plaza de Mayo and El Obelisco (The Obelisk) or visit at night to see the bridge spectacularly illuminated.

While here, pay the nominal fee to step aboard the Fragata Sarmiento. Formerly an Argentine Navy training ship, the vessel is maintained in its late 19th-century appearance and is now a museum. Look inside the engine room and captain's quarters, check out the weaponry and stand at the ship’s helm.     

Within close proximity of the bridge you’ll find places to purchase drinks, snacks and fast food; try empanadas (hot meat-filled pockets) or choripán (chorizo sausage in bread). There are also abundant restaurants with outdoor seating areas that allow you to enjoy the views. Consider bringing a picnic and sitting at one of the waterside benches. A short stroll from the east side of the bridge is Parque Mujeres Argentinas. This park’s green lawns provide another good spot for picnics and a place to escape the crowds.

A convenient way to get to the Women's Bridge is to catch a public bus or the metro to Plaza de Mayo. From here, walk about 15 minutes east.
