Bridge of Sighs, Lima
(3.7/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Located in a beautiful neighborhood of Lima, this bridge gives more color to this picturesque place. It is worth visiting it.

  • Barranco is beautiful, it can spend a Saturday night walking calmly, and pass over the bridge for essential photo, us we love, there are people who if not bring camera are offered to take and print it yourself at the time (obviously have a cost).

Made of wood in the SIXX, from North to South, visited at any time of the year, is crossed to a also renewed chapel which is open all year round, or throughout the day. Under the bridge goes to the sea on both sides is houses and a store; being used every day in summer.
