Puente del Inca - 2744 m

Puente del Inca - 2744 m
"Puente del Inca" is a natural arch that forms a bridge over the Las Cuevas River, a tributary of the Mendoza River. While the bridge has shown signs of deterioration, it remains stable under its weight under present conditions. In the early 20th century, there was a large thermal resort and monastery that used the hot sulphur springs to cure certain illnesses. There was a railway station, which is still standing, and tourists arrived by train to the resort. The spa was tucked into the side of the cliff, almost underneath the natural bridge. Spring floods, landslides and avalanches destroyed the buildings and the bridge is now closed for foot traffic. Not in 2000, when we still could walk over the bridge. - panorama of 2 scanned slides, Minolta X700 - see PiP

Such an interesting feature............a fusion of the natural rock and the man-made spa. I really like the detail you've captured and that lovely mustard colour caused by the sulphur!

A superb shot Berny!

Ja, die schwefeligen Quellen tun hier ganze Arbeit und überziehen alles mit einer Mineralienschicht!

Welches vorletzte bild? Momentan sehe ich noch keine reste, aber vielleicht muss die railway station noch ein bisschen mehr verfallen, damit ich sie sehe? ;-)
