Ponte Velha, Morretes

City landmark Ponte Velha, constructed in 1912 and extensively restored in 1975, crosses the Nhundiaquara River in the spot once used for gold panning. The bridge is close to the downtown area and serves up a bit of local history in a natural setting. Wide enough for the passage of only one vehicle at time, the bridge once stood as a symbol of regional wealth. Today this remnant of the past reminds visitors of the many changes and modern developments the country has gone through in the recent decades. Near the bridge you can find several restaurants (with outdoor seating overlooking the river), as well as a few souvenir shops and convenient general stores.

  • When you visit Morretes and is walking through the village center, sees the bridge and your feeling is that you have to go through it. It's a poor little one passing car and pedestrians. She is very old and charming and complete view of the river and the landscape is excellent

  • Old bridge, you get people to visit the shops and stalls selling handicrafts. Very reminiscent of the past.
