Triana Bridge

Declared as a National Historical Monument in 1976, the Triana Bridge, also known as the Puente de Isabel II, crosses the River Guadalquivir to link the heart of the city with the charming neighbourhood of Triana.

Opened in 1852, this is now the oldest iron bridge in Spain, and one of Seville's most notable symbols.

Looking Back

Before the bridge was built, to cross from one side of the river into the Triana neighbourhood, a curious "bridge of boats" was created. As the name suggests, this was a rudimentary system made up of boats connected with iron chains and with wooden walkways placed on top. 

Logically, this bridge was not a sustainable option, and it was highly affected by the river's rising tide. As such, it was decided that a permanent bridge would be created, which would then become one of the greatest works of iron architecture in Spain.

Essential

The Triana Bridge is one of the main points of interest in the city of Seville. You can enjoy a pleasant walk over the bridge, admiring the views of the river either in the day or at night, or another way of exploring it is on a fun, self-guided electric car tour.
