Triana is one of the most special areas of Seville. It has many different aspects and lots of history and tradition. Also, it has a mix of old shops, modern businesses, traditional bars, and hip places to hang out. Moreover, it is a fabulous mix of everything you could want and plenty to explore.
It is one of eleven districts within Seville, and sits on the banks of the River Guadalquivir, on the opposite side from the historic centre.
Furthermore, the area is said to have gained its name from a Roman Emperor named Trajan.
Triana is an authentic barrio (neighbourhood) with something to see everywhere you look. Therefore, the first thing you will notice when you take your first steps through Triana is that it is quite unique. Perhaps this is the result of being on the other side of the river. The Triana bridge is on the same site as the original bridge was. However, regardless of its separation from Seville, there are still many unmistakable characteristics that are associated with Seville. Such as ceramic art and the flamenco dance that is rooted in area.
Triana is the birthplace of a great number of famous flamenco artists (guitarists, cantaores – flamenco singers, and tonadilla singers), celebrated bullfighters, distinguished potters, and historic sailors.
An area not to be missed.
