Bridge of Sighs, Lima

(650+ reviews on the web)
Bridge
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.

  • Visit ravine, there is the bridge of Sighs, walk in the surrounding area, is very cosy place, much tourist, can be downloaded to the beach, many restaurants to taste a good ceviche; the only thing I recommend is that they don't grip those taxis which are offering service are a few scoundrels, when pay don't give you the full change, usually given in coins and pull flown truck so that you don't have time to claim them; It is best to call über that, with them, you know how much you charge and are more you cabales...
