Overlooking the Bajada de Los Banos on Barranco is an unassuming bridge called La Puente de los Suspiros. Legend has it that if you hold your breath while crossing the bridge for the first time, you are granted a wish.

The Puente de los Suspiros (Bridge of Sighs) is one of the most interesting place in Barranco, a part of Lima, Peru. The wooden bridge was built in the late nineteenth century, and has been a historical landmark ever since. It's called the Bridge of Sighs after a legend that there was once a very rich man's daughter who fell in love with a street sweeper. The father forbade their relationship so the young girl became a spinster, never to marry. It has been said that she would look out her window at the bridge looking for her lover, and sigh.Recommended for:History Buffs
