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.

A marvellous "domed" bridge made years ago by an engineering genius. Decades later the flow of traffic rendered it to narrow, so the Uruguayan government in a brilliant decision made another twin bridge next to it... exactly the same as the original with its two...More
