  • I have the happy opportunity to travel and I have witnessed this kind of "tuning" position locks, and more, mainly in Paris, but with the diferncia each time, are changing, the bridge last year was crowded of these locks, this year were changed, I think that in your ttotalidad, as new were wn perfect condition. The bridge which is on July 18 is a total disgrace, dirt and rust gives a picture of total neglect, is a total disgust!

  • The font is beautiful and charming, located in a corner. There are lockers of various sizes, with lovers ' initials and country of origin.
