The bridge is in the process (2018) of being deconstructed. This project is expected to last ten years, and won't be complete until 2028. At time of writing the suspension cables had been removed and six tower cranes were in place to dismantle the remaining...More

The bridge is a landmark for Florianopolis. It is at the moment under reconstruction, for an incredible amount of money. It will be a beautiful entrance when you pass the (new) bridge from land-side Florianopolis to island-Floripa. Avoid rush hours or you will for sure...More

A must see. The landmark of Florianopolis is this old beautiful iron bridge. It is currently undergoing a lengthy restoration, but you can easily get an impression of it.

A great view point over the beach and new bridge. Great to see that major renovation work is now being undertaken; this is a piece of engineering that is very worth saving for the future. Good viewed from the sea as well.

Ponte Hercilio Luz, one of the main ex-libris of Florianópolis, is also one of the main architectural landmarks of the island. The bridge is beautiful and gives an excellent impression when one travels from the airport to the city centre. Besides, it marks the starting...More
