Bridge of Sighs, Lima

#36 of 376 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.

  • It is one of the places with the longest tradition of Lima, by its meaning and the way how you can enjoy now. It is in the District of Barranco, which is perfect for an evening stroll. If you go as a couple and visits him for the first time, you must cross it holding your breath and then you can make a wish.
