For almost 700 years, Seville's pontoon bridge, the Puente de Barcas, was the first and only bridge over the stretch of the Guadalquivir River that runs through the city. It connected the Triana neighborhood with the rest of the city. The bridge was commissioned in 1171 by the caliph of the Almohad empire, Abu Yaqub Yusuf. At the time of the Magellan-Elcano expedition, the bridge was made of wood and supported on tethered barges.
