Puente del Inca is a natural arch that forms a bridge over the Vacas River. It is located near Las Cuevas and the entrance to the Aconcagua Provincial Park (Mendoza Province). The natural bridge is 48 metres long, 28 metres wide, 27 metres high and has a dickness of about 8 metres. At the arch there was built a thermal resort and spa in 1925, but destroyed by a landslide in 1965. Part of the termal hotel ruins, below the natural arch, are unfortunately still existing.
