    El Puente del Papa (The Pope's Bridge) is a bridge located in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon, Mexico, across the usually dry Río Santa Catarina.

    It took its name when Pope John Paul II offered a Catholic mass over the bridge.

    Before the Pope John Paul II visited Monterrey, the bridge was called "Puente San Luisito" (St. Little Louis' Bridge), as it connected the "San Luisito" neighbourhood, (today, Independencia neighbourhood) with Monterrey Downtown, across the Santa Catarina River. The name of "Puente San Luisito" was the name of the bridge for over a century, and in just 20 years, it has been completely forgotten.
