The city’s first viaduct that carries its name to this day because, when opened in 1892, it was close to extensive Indian tea plantations.

The metal structure that makes up the viaduct was brought from Germany and it has 204 m in length, connecting the Barão de Itapetininga Street, old tea Street, Right Street. To make the path, until 1897 I had to pay 60 reis, or Três Vintens, which meant that the overpass become known at that time as the viaduct of Três Vintens.
