Padlocks on the fence

Hi when we were in cala bona this year we travelled by motorbike to the left of cala bona were we came to a fenced off cliff which had hundreds of padlocks on the fence!

Anyone know why this is ?

Lovely views from the headland and superb villas on the approach to it.

Often theres flowers there for those who have taken their own life off the cliff i was told :-/

Hi, we were told about these when we were there, the ones near costa del pins? We were told that they are left by couples who "lock their love", aka love locks. Did they have writing on them with names/dates etc?
