Antiguo Puente de Pailón, a challenging bridge in Bolivia

Located in the small town of Pailón in Bolivia, the old bridge in Pailon was one of the most spectacular bridges in the world.

The wooden bridge is 1.4km long and was built in 1950’s. It was a rickety as hell one-lane bridge where trains had the right-of-way, over the Río Grande. Recently was replaced by a parallel new bridge and this one is not working anymore.
