    The Puente de Isabel II, colloquially mostly Puente de Triana, is a road bridge that connects the old town with the opposite district of Triana.
    It was Sevilla's first fixed bridge over the Guadalquivir and is the oldest surviving iron bridge in Spain.
    The first ship bridge opened in 1171 over the Guadalquivir in Seville was built by Caliph Abu Yaqub Yusuf I together with the fortress. It was constantly renewed over the following centuries. Because of the width of the river, the difficult soil conditions and the frequent floods, it was not until the 19th century that a solid bridge was ventured.Construction of the bridge began in 1848 and was opened in February 1852.On April 13, 1976 the Puente Isabel II was declared a Monumento Histórico Nacional and on June 13, 1977 it was reopened after the renovation.Source: de.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Puente_de_Isabel_II
