Discover one of the most iconic neighbourhoods in Seville with this guided tour of Triana. Known by locals as the 'Independent Republic of Triana', some claim to have never even set foot in the city centre!
Guided Tour of Triana
We'll meet behind the Torre del Oro, on Paseo Alcade Marqués del Contadero. From here, we'll walk into the neighbourhood of Triana, just on the other side of the Guadalquivir River.
We'll cross the Isabell II bridge, over this river, and once in the heart of Triana, we'll explore its origins: did you know that it was a neighbourhood of sailors, bullfighters and flamenco dancers?
As we wander through the lively, colourful streets, we'll also see the chapel that is headquarters to the Esperanza de Triana confraternity, as well as the local craft shops. As well as stopping to admire the Royal Church of Santa Ana, dating back to 1276.
We won't just see what the neighbourhood is like these days, but our expert guide will explain all about the famous Trianeros that have made history over the years. These include Rodrigo de Triana, who accompanied Colombus on his voyage to America, and bullfighter Juan Belmonte. We'll also discover about Bartolomé de las Casas, who spend his life fighting against slavery, and Melchor Rodriguez García, who grew up in this neighbourhood before going on to be the "red angel" of the Spanish Civil War.
After discovering the charm and beauty of this historic neighbourhood, we'll finish the tour Next to the Isabel II bridge, one of the most identifiable points in Triana.
