Puente de la Mujer is a pedestrian bridge on the Río de la Plata riverbank in the Puerto Madero district of Buenos Aires. It spans 170 meters long and is divided into two fixed portions, with a rotating section in the middle that allows vessels to pass. The bridge, designed by award-winning Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava to look like two people dancing the tango, was opened in 2001. The poetic name Puente de la Mujer translates to ‘Bridge of the Woman’, and was inspired by the fact that a number of streets in the Puerto Madero district are named after women.
