Romancing Paris on the ‘Love Lock’ Bridges

To view more photos and videos from the love locks on the bridges of Paris, explore the Pont de l’Archevêché and Pont des Arts location pages, or browse the #cadenasdamour and #lovelocks hashtags.

In a city like Paris, finding romantic spots isn’t too difficult—but for Parisians and visitors alike, the French capital’s bridges have a special draw all to themselves.

Rows of padlocks, known as cadenas d’amour, or “love locks,” adorn the Pont des Arts and Pont de l’Archevêché as timeless symbols of love. Those able to find a free space will often inscribe their names on the padlock, latch it to the bridge and then toss the key into the river Seine as a sign of their everlasting commitment.

In recent years, the romantic gesture has captured the hearts of those outside Paris. Love locks can now be found in cities across the world from London to Seoul.

Beautiful!I used to think that love lock can only been found in Seuol.
