Bridge of Sighs, Lima

#30 of 637 in Things to do in Lima
Bridge · Hidden Gem · Tourist Spot
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.
