This pontoon bridge, considered one of the most unique bridges in the world, has become an island icon as it celebrates its 125th anniversary this year. Connecting the east and west sides of the capital city of Willemstad, the bridge, lovingly known as the “Swinging Old Lady,” is a World Heritage monument.

In the running with more than 300 other worldwide landmarks, the Queen Emma Bridge, which floats just minutes via free shuttle from Sunscape Curaçao, has been chosen as a runner-up to be crowned the 8th Wonder of the World!

Curaçao is Home to One of the ‘World’s Most Colorful Cities’

Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa & Casino is surrounded by a number of fabulous local sights, sounds and flavors. Just two miles away sits the island’s capital of Willemstad – a bustling city center with plenty to see and do. Recently, Travel+Leisure named Willemstad one of the “World’s Most Colorful Cities.” It’s easy to see why, based on the palate of colors adorning Curaçao’s Handelskade (pictured below).

Legend has it in the 1800’s a governor of the city outlawed the painting of buildings in white because the sun’s reflection caused him headaches. Later it was found that the governor held stock in the local paint company. Whatever the true reason for the variety of colors, it has certainly added character to the city.

In addition to the colors of the buildings in Willemstad, the city was also designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997. Its cultural and historical significance stems from its authentic architectural and structural elements as a historic port town during Dutch expansion. At the same time, the island is known for its outstanding value and integrity, its multicultural community and the influences it has adopted over three centuries.
