The almost 1,000-foot-long Western Bridge is a hanging bridge suspended over the River Cauca. If you look between the wooden slats, you can see people floating along the current on inflatable tires. The bridge was designed by the engineer José María Villa, born in Sopetrán, who also participated in the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge in New York.
