This bridge opened in the year 1990 bringing even closer 2 cities in 2 countries by the Rio Paraná: Posadas (Argentina) and Encarnación (Paraguay) and was planned by the Binational Entity Yaciretá Hydroelectric Dam. It Proudly has the name of Roque Gonzalez de Santa Cruz, a Jesuit missionary saint born in Asuncion, Paraguay in the year 1576, ve devoted his life to founding Jesuit missions in both countries and was killed with a stone ax in the year 1628. He was beatified in the year 1934 and declared a Saint by Pope John Paul II in the year 1988. Work on the bridge began in the year 1980. It's quite a sight to see sailboats, speedboats and interesting boats in sports competitions going down the river.
It's very nice bridge in the city of Carlos Paz in Uruguay. Every day on the bridge at 21:00 a musical with a light show starts. Inside the bridge there is a museum of pictures of the reality show called Dancing with the Stars. I recommend it. Villa Carlos Paz, Cordoba, Argentina. Irina.
