Puente del Inca

Mendoza & the Central Andes

Naturally occurring stone bridge, once used by Inca to cross the Río de las Cuevas. The ruins of an old spa lie eerily beneath the bridge, which combined with the striking mountain setting make for spectacular photos. The bridge area itself is closed off to visitors. It's just off RN 7, the highway from Uspallata to the high mountain pass crossing with Chile.
