I like the pretty neighborhoods that the viaduct goes through with their mix of Spanish colonial and flat-roof modern homes. The modernist (mid 20th century) style must have made quite an impression on Peruvians.
I wonder though what it's like to have a viaduct in front of your house?
I noticed that some of the squares under the towers have been turned into flower gardens. That they maintain and continue to use this 120 year old structure suggests that the people in Arequipa are proud to have a bridge designed by Eiffel in their city.
