Bridge of Sighs, Lima

4.1
#27 of 685 in Things to do in Lima
Hold your breath as you cross Bridge of Sighs, and if you make it to the other side without exhaling, your true love might just appear before your eyes. In deference to a local legend, unmarried women looking for love attempt to cross the red wooden bridge in one breath, releasing the sighs that give the bridge its name as they reach the other side. If your dream partner doesn't appear within a few minutes of your crossing, console yourself by returning to the center of the bridge and gazing west. You'll enjoy a view over the Pacific Ocean as other breathless hopefuls pass behind you.

  • A bridge, in my opinion small, beautiful but not necessarily exceptional, which has become the main attraction in Barranco, From one side you can see one or the other mural and on the other the Pacific,

  • Coming to Barranco, after the municipality we find the Hermita and the "Bridge of Sighs", impact the well-restored place, you transport to 1800. Walk for the day, afternoon or night, you enjoy taking pictures in every corner and of course Peruvian cuisine.
