The Puente de la Mujer is a pedestrian bridge that spans the Puerto Madero in Buenos Aires. Once the home of the cities ports, the Puerto Madero undertook a massive revitalization in the 1990's after years of neglect. It is now lined with some of the cities best restaurants and nightclubs. The Puente de la Mujer serves as a walkway between the two sides, as well as a termination point for the main city axis which runs through the Palacio del Congreso and the Casa Rosada (President's house). Although this bridge appears to be similar to a few other Calatrave bridges, it is unique in that has a forward cantilever. It also pivots on its base 90 degrees allowing boats to pass through the port.
