Ponte Estaiada Bridge

Sao Paulo, Brazil

Sao Paulo is that rare industrial city that still knows how to be sexy. And nothing here screams industrial sexiness more than its sparkly, curvy Octavio Frias de Oliveira Bridge, also known as the Ponte Estaiada. Unusual in that it has 2 separate winding tracks supported by a huge “X,” this 453-foot bridge sports a light show that outshines the city’s best discos. Come December, the “X” lights up into a 453-foot glowing Christmas tree. Drive a fast car across this cable-hung bridge -- and feel all of the speed, steel and sexiness of Sao Paulo.
