Seville is one of the most beautiful cities in our country, and it is well deserved that it has earned that "it has a special color." Spectacular monuments, streets with a lot of charm, buildings steeped in history … endless places to visit and where you can enjoy everything they have to offer. One of the many things you can see adorning the landscape of this city is the Alamillo Bridge , one of the most beautiful in Andalusia, at least in my opinion.

This bridge, spectacular where it exists, was built on the occasion of the 1992 Expo that hosted the city of Seville. It is on what is known as Isla de la Cartuja and is one of the four bridges that were built to house that event. The Alamillo Bridge crosses the meander of the San Jerónimo river and it took almost 3 years for its construction, although after it it did not take long to become one of the symbols of the city, which makes it an essential visit if you are going to be In sevilla.

The bridge was a design by Santiago Calatrava and has a 132-meter-high pillar that leans almost 60 degrees. From that pillar, the only one it has, 13 cables protrude, which is what gives it its original and beautiful appearance. The inclination of the pillar is due to the fact that at first another bridge was going to be built next to it, but in the end it was not built and the Alamillo Bridge was preserved with its original design.

It is clear that it is a very beautiful place to visit at any time of the day, although it is essential that you also see it at night since with the entire city ​​illuminated it looks spectacular.
