The Seville neighborhood of Triana is reached by the Puente de Isabel II bridge and is situated on the opposite side of the Guadalquivir. It is a bustling working-class area that has given birth to numerous well-known flamenco and bullfighters dancers. There are not many noteworthy sights in Triana. Instead, it is a genuine neighborhood filled with charming little streets that are enjoyable to meander through. Surprisingly few people visit this area of Seville, despite it once being the most significant one.

In the past, the Triana neighborhood served as the hub for the city's main waterways. The pottery and tiles from this business area were well known. Ceramic tiles called azulejos feature a common blue painting. Triana grew even more into a working-class neighborhood as the Guadalquivir silted up.

Its main attraction is its authentic Andalusian charm, with narrow cobbled streets leading to quaint squares lined with orange trees and vibrant shades of ochre, oatmeal, and terracotta decorating the façades of buildings. Triana is also home to many monuments such as The Chapel of La Virge de las Angustias, which was built in the 18th century.

The square itself hosts various cultural activities such as flamenco performances, while nearby shops offer traditional souvenirs like Giralda bells or carnival hats - each offering an insight into local culture. Visitors can also take advantage of a range of recreational activities available in Triana: from rowing on the river through its numerous bridges, to exploring its celebrated pottery workshops - there is something for everyone.

Places to visit:

The most well-known church in this neighborhood is the Santa Ana Church from 1276. Children who are baptized here are said to receive a good flamenco voice.

La Capilla de Los Marineros, another church, is located at 52 Calle Pureza. The Virgin Esperanza de Triana statue is located at the seaside chapel. This figure is transported back and forth from the Seville Cathedral across the city during Semana Santa.

Your city trip will be enhanced by visiting the Triana neighborhood. Explore the streets or unwind on a terrace or restaurant (Calle Betis) along the vibrant Guadalquivir Boulevard. Here, you have a lovely view in the evening.

Additionally, it is worthwhile to visit the Mercado de Triana, the daily fresh market. The locals come here in the morning for a wide variety of vegetables, meat, fruits, herbs, and fish. Be sure to sample some of the food at the quaint restaurants.
