Triana
About
For a more authentic and decidedly less well-scrubbed experience, it’s worth crossing the river to explore this scruffy but vibrant old quarter, historically the centre of azulejo, or glazed-tile production. There are plenty of tapas bars for sustenance to sustain your ceramic shopping, and it’s fun to seek out the surviving corrales. These tiny buildings with flower-smothered courtyards once housed extended the gypsy families from which emerged Spain’s greatest flamenco dynasties.

    Vibrate old town vibe. Great bars and restaurants.
    We visited here a couple of times, crossing the river and wandering around for a few hours. The mercado is worth popping into as are some of the old bars and restaurants. It comes to life at night, we would probably stay in this area next time we visit Seville. The walk along the river is lovely.

    Ceramic paradise
    Quite a special place to visit and simply walk around. Our primary goal was to visit the numerous ceramic shops there and there were numerous to visit. We did end up buying some smaller pieces particularly Christmas ornaments and the prices were reasonable. There were numerous larger objects that we contemplated but just the thought of lugging them around for the rest of the trip gave us angina so we passed. We will without a doubt visit again the next time we are in the area. I would recommend getting there by taxi or Uber if you are over a mile away. We stayed near the train station and Uber worked wonderfully to get us exactly where we wanted to go. Enjoy

    Across the River.
    The other side of the city, Triana is located on the opposite side of the river. Lots of shops and some smallnarrow streets,but no daytime atmosphere. Might be better at night, but not sure how safe it might be then.

To reach Triana in style, you must cross the bridge, Puente Triana also known as Puente Isabel II, on foot to admire the vistas of the Guadalquivir and then discover the architecture of the area, not as grand as in other barrios de Sevilla, but the narrow meandering streets do have a charm of their own. The market place is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds too! The Museo de la Inquisicion is a must for those who want to understand the history of Sevilla and what happened to the unfortunate prisoners. The Museo de la Ceramica is well worth a detour to realise the artistic savoir-faire in the azulejos is not that easily achieved.

A trip to Seville is not complete without venturing across one of the bridges to Triana. Since Roman times this area of Seville has been famous for pottery.
We took a walk through the traditional narrow streets, with beautiful tiled houses and flower filled outdoor displays which presented a reprieve from the activity across the river in the centre of Seville.

There are still workshops producing and selling tiles and pottery but be aware they tend to close for siesta. There are plenty of inviting cafes, restaurants and bars spilling out onto the streets which somehow have a different atmosphere to anywhere else we had experienced in Seville.

We also took a walk along the riverbank and settled into a small cafe/restaurant overlooking the water. If you want something a bit more expensive and exclusive then keep walking and you will find some more private choices to eat.
As a midlife adventurer this was honestly one of our favourite parts of the trip to Seville and if we had our time over again, despite this area being the furthest away from the train station, we would have found an Air BnB here and happily stayed.

To lighten our lunch load we went on a walk along the banks of the Guadalquivir River. Looking across the river we could see Moorish buildings, baroque architecture and shops on the opposite side that were located in a portion of the Triana District, known as the Andalusian capital’s Gypsy quarter. This area is often thought of as the most vibrant area of the city, as it is famous for its flamenco and painted local craft stalls that line the streets. The beautiful Triana Bridge beckoned but we had plans to explore a bullring.

With 3 days in Seville, we had time to explore a little further beyond the Real Alcazar and the Cathedral so we decided to do a looped walk through Triana, which is famous for its ceramics and azulejos tiles.
A couple of hours was enough to see the following:
i) We started at the Puente Isabella II, the bridge that crosses the Guadalquivir River. This brought us right into the heart of Triana.
ii) The first thing you see from the bridge is the Capila del Carmen, a tiny but beautiful chapel
iii) The Mercado de Triana (local market) was on our right as we came off the bridge. We should have gone earlier. We went after midday and most things were closing.
iv) Next we went to the Museo Del Castilo San Jorge, a small free museum inside the remains of a 12th century castle. The market was built over the top of it, so it’s hidden away underneath the market. The steps down to the entrance are next to the market doors, just as you leave the bridge. The most interesting thing is that for over 300 years the castle was the headquarters of the Spanish Inquisition. There’s an exhibition inside and entry is free.
v) Afterwards we wandered around some of the narrow lanes, looking out for colourful, interesting tiled decorations on the houses and walls and we stopped at some of the ceramics shops, esp Ceramica Triana / Ceramica Santa Ana.
vi) Finally we headed back to the bridge along Calle San Jacinto, stopping along the way for a drink and a couple of tapas plates.

Triana is like a separate entity in this city, people born in this neighbourhood don't feel Sevillanos. Old, stylish, so charming, this quarter is also the place to be for those who are looking for real, traditional tapas experiences. My tapas tour in Triana at night was unforgettable.

We read about this being a really historic district where people who weren’t allowed to live in Seville went to live. Home of pottery workshops and many stores selling beautiful works unlike what you see in the souvenir shops. The fruit and vegetables market is also worth a look - it closes at three. Cross the river, it’s worth it!

A great place to get away from the main tourist places with a pleasant walk across the river. Love the market with all the beautiful fresh produce and places to sit and sample the seafood. Walking around the streets is very interesting as it is a residential area so good to see how people live there. The ceramic museum is worth a visit and having a good look around at all the buildings with their tiles and window boxes full of brightly coloured flowers. Good restaurants to eat and drink in too.

An old working-class neighborhood on a peninsula between the Guadalquivir river and the canal is an enjoyable area to stroll around. There used to be a sizeable Romani community living here (displaced by city 'developers' in the 1960s and 70s) which contributed so much to flamenco culture. Construction workers, sailors, bull fighters and potters used to form the main groups of inhabitants, but the area is gradually gentrified. Especially the areas close to the canal like Betis street now house many restaurants, bars and hotels. Don't miss the Mercado and Calle San Jacinto pedestrian zone.

Stayed in Triana for seven nights, pretty town with a ceramic museum. The main street was busy with lots or restaurants and a market selling lots of fresh produce. Place is peaceful and quiet and close enough for walking to the major sites. The side streets also have great architecture.
