Based on other reviews, we thought we had to see this bridge. Really!? It is nothing, just a regular looking bridge, I couldn't even find a sign that said what it was, we walked across it and thought, this is really it? Unless you are...More

If you are in Barranco (a lovely area) it is worth a visit, there is a lovely little alley that runs underneath it, full of graffitied walls, cafe's and bars.

We walked 4km from Miraflores to get to it and it was just a small wooden bridge with trees blocking any views of the ocean or city. The only sighing we did was with disappointment
