A great view point over the beach and new bridge. Great to see that major renovation work is now being undertaken; this is a piece of engineering that is very worth saving for the future. Good viewed from the sea as well.

Ponte Hercilio Luz, one of the main ex-libris of Florianópolis, is also one of the main architectural landmarks of the island. The bridge is beautiful and gives an excellent impression when one travels from the airport to the city centre. Besides, it marks the starting...More

This bridge is the symbol of Floripa, you drive around and you can see it from many different angles. This bridge welcomes you when you arrive (you see it from the actual bridge) and says goodbye when you leave. If you love Floripa, this bridge...More
