    Take a tour of Buenos Aires Women's Bridge in Buenos Aires, Argentina - part of the World's Greatest Attractions travel video series by GeoBeats.

    Showcasing a modern design by Alberto L. Gonzales, Buenos Aires Women's Bridge spears the Argentinean sky.

    The bridge was erected in 2001 and was made from parts that were built in Spain and then imported to Buenos Aires over a period of 5 months.

    It is primarily accessed by foot as a pedestrian walkway, and is divided into three different parts.

    Two of the parts are immobile, while the middle section rotates in a right angle to allow passing boats through.

    Buenos Aires Women's Bridge is a specific type of bridge called Cantilever spar cable stayed, but is also considered a swing bridge.

    Symbolically, the bridge represents a dance of tango; the strong man supporting the woman who leans back in his arms.
