Worth experiencing but not a destination to plan your day around. More interesting image the little cafes and pubs below the bridge. Easy walk from the Malecón or central miraflores

Many places and tours "fluff up" certain qualities of their product to generate interest. As part of the Barranco tour, the "Bridge of Sighs" comes close to this, as it is an ordinary structure but comes with interesting backstory that the Free Walking Tour can...More

Barranco was one of our favorite stops in Lima. People watching, lively music, street artists, and a lovely view of "el mar".

This is not hugely exciting but we were told the story of the bridge by our excellent walking tour guide so the whole feature was brought alive. We heard how on Valentine’s Day the bridge is thronged with young couples which must be very entertaining....More

This is a cute district with a variety of coffee shops, cafes and restaurants. Some are excellent and well worth visiting. It's also a nice place for a walk or just to people watch.

Yeah, is just a bridge but it's fun to run and ask your friends to take a pic while you're trying to hold your breath. So, 1,2,3...go!

Not really sure what the fuss is about. It's just a bridge really unless I'm missing the point which is a possibility!

Crossed the Bridge of Sighs on our walk around the area this morning. It’s quite a pretty part of this area and seemed to be a draw for local people. There’s lots of street art around that is worth taking in as well.

This was not as picturesque as I was led to believe. It wasn't dirty or filled with people hawking goods...but it was just a bridge. It was not special in any way. (The bridge in Hoi An, Vietnam, was special.) The little park nearby was...More
