Bridge of Sighs, Lima

(3.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan your visit to Bridge of Sighs and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Lima itinerary builder.

  • It is a place in limited time. It is picturesque but it could be better maintained in its surroundings and views down to the sea in but found them not how spectacular others have. The smell is unpleasant in Gral. in ravine

  • It is a nice walk, surrounded by the Bohemian district of Barranco. Close from there the sunset is a photo required!

  • Nice wooden bridge over a scenic descent to the coast in Barranco. It is a very nice entry at this Lima neighborhood.
