Triana Seville

20 Best things to visit in the Triana Seville neighbourhood


On the west bank of the Guadalquivir river is the popular neighbourhood of Triana. The residents of Triana have traditionally been called “trianeros”. Legend holds that Triana was founded as a Roman colony by the emperor
Trajano. Its urban growth occurred with the construction of the Puente de Barcas in 1171.

Its castle, known later as Castillo de San Jorge, was built with the intention of defending this Puente de Barcas and represents the birth of the Triana neighbourhood. The history of this neighbourhood is the history of its streets, its buildings, its people, etc.

This neighbourhood welcomes us in its popular Plaza del Altozano to take us through its streets full of vitality, such as Betis or Alfarería, which remind us that Triana was a sailor and potter neighbourhood

It is also famous for its bullfighters, its cantaores (flamenco singers) and its bailaores (flamenco dancers). Since time immemorial it had a large population of gypsies, who lived in the area known as the “Cava de los Gitanos”.

After the American Discovery, a great majority of sailors born in Triana were part of these expeditions.
