“Amazing”

Reviewed 2 April 2018 via mobile

Amazing view, take a Tuk Tuk from Santa Fe de Antioquia, the driver will wait 20 min, enough to walk the bridge and take pictures. You can walk to the view from the Virgin Mary, that part needs better stairs and cleaning

Great and amazing engineering construction, it’s a majestic bridge built in 1887 and communicates the Santa Fe de Antioquia town with Olaya and Sopetran towns. You can reach it hiring a mototaxi in the Santa Fe de Antioquia’s main park for 20000 COP round trip. You must walk the bridge and go upscale until the lookout, where you can enjoy the amazing view of the Cauca river and the bridge.

This historic bridge was on the trade route trail between Santa Fe and Medellian. It is a beautiful construct and has been renovated four times. One way and too narrow for buses its walkway have nice views of the river.

The bridge is one of the oldest in the country. It has a rich history. One can choose to walk it up or go on your bike or car. The bridge used to walk was constructed 25 yrs back, the main one where they allow vehicles was in 1890. Its a beautiful place to visit.

It is well worth taking a mototaxi from town COP20000 to see this bridge. They wait on the other side and you can walk over. Don't be sucked into climbing the "Lookout" on the Santa Fe side. It is very steep and not safe.
