Paris, known worldwide as the city of romance, began the heart-breaking process Monday of removing hundreds of thousands of “love-locks”, padlocks chained to the city’s bridges by adoring couples.
Paris city officials have started to remove padlocks symbolically fastened to one of the French capital’s main bridges by loved-up couples.
Tying a “love lock” on to the Pont des Arts before throwing the key into the River Seine beneath has become a tourist tradition in recent years.
The city says the locks, usually hung by couples to express eternal love, are causing long-term damage to Paris heritage sites. Part of the bridge’s railings collapsed under the weight last year.
