The love locks of Paris

The love locks of Paris

If you look closely as you cross the Pont de l’Archevêché bridge in Paris, you will see it bursting with locks.Why? If a couple writes their names on a padlock and locks it onto a bridge before throwing the key into the Seine River, it is said to be a symbol of their undying love.

  1. When we visited Paris last year we were amazed at how many padlocks had appeared not just on one bridge but on several stretching round to the gates of Notre Dame.

      I know! They seemed to have run out of space so decided to expand. There really must be a whole lot of love in Paris! 🙂
