Holidays in Women's Bridge

Holiday Travel Guide
Women\'s Bridge featuring a high-rise building, modern architecture and a bridge

When in Buenos Aires’ Puerto Madero neighbourhood, cross this iconic pedestrian bridge for a panorama of the waterfront skyline.

Jutting out above the Buenos Aires port district is the white tower of the modern Women’s Bridge (Puente de la Mujer). Cross this pedestrian bridge over the water for some of the best views of the Buenos Aires skyline. Arrive at dusk to see the sun set over the city.

Notice how the diagonal support tower of the Women’s Bridge appears to defy physics. The tower was designed to represent a couple in a traditional tango pose, with the woman leaning back against her male partner at an unbalanced diagonal angle. Accordingly, the tower is named after the female dancer. Check a map and you’ll see that all the street names in the neighbourhood honour significant Argentine women as well.

From the standpoint of the bridge, look into the city to see the Plaza de Mayo with El Obelisco (The Obelisk) standing high above it. The bridge itself echoes the pointed white shape of the Obelisk, but it also stands in stark contrast to the brick warehouses of the port district around it. Visit the area at night to see the bridge brightly lit from all sides.

Standing directly beside the bridge in the Buenos Aires Harbour is the Fragata Sarmiento, a 19th-century battleship that has been transformed into a floating museum. Tour the ship’s deck, marvel at the antique cannons and peek into the cramped captain’s quarters down in the hull.

Sample some Argentine specialties from the food stands and restaurants in the Puerto Madero district around the bridge. Choripán (chorizo sandwich) and empanadas (meat-stuffed bread pockets) are two Buenos Aires fast-food essentials. Sit on a restaurant terrace along the harbour and watch the bridge lights turn on once the sun has gone down. Otherwise, drop by an area grocery store to buy picnic supplies. Then, head over to Parque Mujeres Argentinas to the east and enjoy your picnic on a park bench or a shaded lawn.

To reach the Women’s Bridge, take a bus or metro to the Plaza de Mayo, then take a 15-minute walk east.
