  The bridges Nicolas Avellaneda
by mtncorg

The original 1908 bridge is in a permanent ?up? position, sitting as a neighborhood symbol. Next to it, the 1939 bridge was build with a design harkening back to its predecessor. The bridges effectively separate the dock facilities of Darsena Sur from the neighborhood of La Boca. At the old bridge?s base is a small ferry service ? the Riachuelo dinghies ? providing pedestrians a means to cross the river by for 50 centavos, maybe more meaningful glimpse into the soul of La Boca than the garishness of the Caminito?

Directions: Walk east from the Vuelta de Roca about 200 meters along the water
