The unique Puente del Inca

What is the Puente del Inca? It is actually a natural arch or a bridge. The bridge is considered to be formed by the interaction of extreme elements: the nearby hot springs and ice (scientists say that the actual river which flows beneath was covered by ice in ancient times). During the 20th century there used to be a thermal spa and resort here due to the presence of the hot springs. This resort doesn’t exist today. 

The Puente del Inca is a very attractive visitor attraction. Visiting this unique and unusual sight makes an unforgettable experience.
