Bridge of Sighs, Lima

Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • I enjoy when I walks with friends or alone. The night walks are the best, you can enjoy quality lighting that surrounds the bridge of sighs. And don't forget to make a wish while crossing the bridge.

  • The bridge is a neat bit of local legend. It is in the midst of other nice things, so it is worth a walk over. 
  • It is a nice walk, where you can walk up and down the bridge, you get down to a viewpoint overlooking the beach, very nice for the sunset, near the bridge there are several restaurants nearby
