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.

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.


A few blocks from the Plaza de Toros, the bridge connects the Arenal and Plaza de Armas districts with the Triana quarter.
