The Guadalquivir river separates Seville in 2 areas, located at the east and west of its waters. Also, by tradition, it separates the city centre with its architectural gems (like the Reales Alcazares, the Cathedral and the Giralda tower) from the most important gipsy neighbourhood of Triana in Seville. 

Located in the west side of the river, the Triana neighbourhood in Seville communicates with the city centre by the Isabel II Bridge, also known as Triana bridge. The charm of the neighbourhood starts with its bridge, that is the oldest bridge with an iron structure in Spain.

Among the historic buildings you can visit in Triana, you will find the following ones: San Jorge Castle (nowdays the Market of Triana), that was the headquarters of the Inquisition in the 15th century; the church of Santa Ana (the oldest in the city) and many “corrales”. The corrales are the typical common courtyards that were popular on the 19th century and that continue to have their charm nowadays.

Another of the reasons why you won’t have to let pass the chance of enjoying the tourism in Seville, and in particular, of this neighbourhood of Triana, is that there are many stores where you can buy the most beautiful and traditional sevillian artcrafts, like ceramics, fans and leather goods.

In fact, the Betis street. famous for its restaurants and terraces is located in this neighbourhood. So, if you’re looking for a place to stroll, go shopping or just to rest and have a drink, the Triana neighbourhood of Seville is the place to go!
