Paris is one of those wonderful places with lots of surprises and interesting things to see.
I had heard about the bridges with lots of lover’s padlocks, but I was unprepared for the thousands of these ‘pledges of love’ that adorn two bridges in the centre of the city. The Pont de L’Archevêché is one of these.
If the key to each padlock is tossed over into the river, there must be a lot of rusty keys at the bottom of the Seine in this area!
All those heavy locks must add a significant amount of weight to the overall bridge!
There is one thing for sure….. if a relationship came adrift and the lock needed to be removed – it would be a mammoth job to find it again!
