Barranco may be a wild place in the evening but it is extremely quiet and serene on a Monday afternoon. We walked down a pedestrian street lined with closed restaurants and then down a cobblestone, tree shaded path under the Punto de los Suspiros (The Bridge of Sighs). Along the path were more closed restaurants and cafes. It was quaint and quiet. We walked down to the beach then back up the path and across the bridge to an old cathedral. The front had been restored and painted but the rest was practically in ruins with vultures perching on the skeleton of the steeple and bent cross.
