This bridge marks the territorial limit by way of the Via Blanca Highway of the provinces of Havana and Matanzas, and so both territories squabble for this genuine jewel of Cuban architecture of an extension of 114 metres and heights of around 110 metres. The construction was finished in 1960 and the arch of the bridge was made out of laminated metal, set up in two sections, each one turning until they were locked in their permanent position. The girders weigh at least 47 tonnes each. It can be considered the most complex and daring construction of its type in Cuba."The Bacunayagua Bridge, which has become an indispensable connection on the road that links the province of Havana with the wold-famous coastal resort of Varadero, complements its breathtaking structure with the region's exuberant nature and the round-the-clock services of a lookout.
The establishment, run by the chain RUMBOS, is located in an area where Man's work blends with the natural environment to provide an excellent atmosphere for rest and leisure.
Located on a small hill, "El Mirador" (The Lookout) gives visitors the chance to enjoy, in all its magnitude, the Bacunayagua Bridge, which marks the traditional border between the provinces of Matanzas and Havana, both in western Cuba.
