Seville enchants

The reason it bears the name of Queen of Spain Isabel II is precisely because it was built at the time of her reign, specifically inaugurated in February 1852. The French engineers Steinacher and Bernadet were in charge of bringing it into being, taking as a model the no longer present Paris bridge named Pont du Carrousel.

The Rodriguez de la Borbolla Bridge was built in 1904 to replace the old boat crossing that linked La Algaba with Seville. The bridge had three metal sections that were accessed by a large pontoon with nine vaults.  However, its construction was affected by several incidents and had to be built in several stages. 

The bridge consists of a single 4-metre-wide span with an elliptical masonry arch and large brick abutments. 

Given the type of arch, it is believed to have been built in the 18th century. It is used as a public road.
 

 The Carlos III Bridge crosses the Guadaíra river on the stretch closest to the old town, where several roads converge since medieval times.

It is popularly known as the Roman Bridge because its construction, dated post 15th century, was built in a place where there is proof of an existing Roman structure, although it is not externally visible. 

The bridge commonly known as “Dragon Bridge” was built as part of Alcalá de Guadaíra’s ring road,which links the A-92 motorway (Seville-Almería) with the A-392 Alcalá-Dos Hermanas road.

The Santísimo Cristo de la Expiración Bridge is an urban bridge in Seville that crosses the River Guadalquivir and is the natural exit from the town to the Aljarafe and the province of Huelva. It was built in 1991.

It is one of the main accesses to the northern area of Isla de la Cartuja, and is close to the Science and Technology Park and the Isla Mágica theme park.

The engineers in charge of its design were Marcos Jesús Pantaleón and Juan José Arenas, also on the occasion of Expo'92.
