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, more popularly known as the Triana Bridge, one of the most popular hallmarks of the city. As we delve into the neighbourhood, we'll pass by the Chapel of Carmen, designed by Sevillan architect Aníbal González.
Once in the heart of Triana, we'll explore its origins: did you know that traditionally it was a neighbourhood of sailors, bullfighters and flamenco dancers? We'll also stop to admire the façade of the Santa Ana church: dating back to 1276, this is the oldest church in Triana.
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. Triana has long been famed for its excellent ceramics and pottery, you could even get yourself a souvenir here!
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 outside the San Jorge Castle Museum.
Please note that on this tour we will not enter any monuments, rather we'll see them from outside and our expert guide will tell you all about them.
