Puente del Inca

Puente del Inca

Puente del Inca, Spanish for “the Inca’s Bridge”, is a natural arch that forms a bridge over the Vacas River, a tributary of the Mendoza River. It is located in Mendoza Province, Argentina near Las Cuevas.
In 1925 on the right bank of the river a luxury Hotel-Spa “Puente del Inca” with Thermal Baths was built to harness the healing power of thermal waters. Unfortunately in 1965 the hotel was totally destroyed by the devastating landslide.
Throughout the years a transformation in coloring was triggered by the sulfur compounds and numerous minerals within the hot waters that flow through the termal hotel ruins.
