Isabel II bridge of Seville was built in 1847-1852 by the French engineers Bernadet and Steinacher, to replace the former boat bridge of 1171. It is a fine example of 19th-century iron architecture.

On your way from the Torre del Oro you pass the  Monumento a la Tolerancia, by the contemporary Basque sculptor Eduardo Chillida.

Having crossed the bridge, you have a nice view on the  City Center of Seville on the other side of the Río Guadalquivir.

Isabel II bridge is also popularly called Puente Triana, as you continue on towards the heart of (6) Triana quarter. Here the bridge is based on the remains of the former San Jorge castle, which was the last headquarters of the Inquisición in Seville.
