Pont de L'Archeveche--Bridge of Locks

There are several bridges with locks, but Pont de L'Archeveche is a beautiful bridge that crosses over from Notre-Dame Cathedral to the Latin Quarter. Both sides are completely covered with padlocks.

So the tradition goes that you and your love bring a lock with something written on it, find a spot to attach it, then throw the key in the river.


It was amazing to see all sizes, shapes, colors of locks, bike locks, railroad locks, you name it. Locks were locked to locks, forming lock chains because it was so full.
