We are located in the historic centre of Triana.


In Seville, crossing the river and arriving at Triana means crossing an imaginary frontier where the logic of the historic city generation dissolve. Triana is a quarter that is generated and shown on a small, close, almost domestic scale. It is a complex urban ensemble that intermingles neighbourhood sections, artisan workshops, popular housing and residential growth from the mid-20th century. In Triana there is a coexistence of traditional craft and daily activities (pottery, flamenco…) strongly identified with the place and clearly reflected in the street, full of activity and hustle and bustle. Triana is a place where you can discover everyday pleasures.

The Triana market

The Triana market is perhaps one of the few markets that, despite combining stalls and restaurants, has not lost any of its traditional essence.

Fruits, vegetables, fish, meat, pulses, pickles, cheeses… And bars, restaurants, oyster bars, juice shops, patisseries… There is even a cookery school and a theatre.

Rectangular in shape and with one of its longer sides facing the river, the market has three main entrances, the entrance next to the Triana bridge, the one located on the opposite side of the street to the meeting of Callao and Castilla streets, next to the arch of the Callejón de la Inquisición and, finally, the entrance from Calle San Jorge.

Inside the square, the stalls are distributed in parallel and perpendicular streets, forming an orthogonal grid; with 5 long streets crossed by a central one and another at the end, next to the high wall of the old castle. Each shop is numbered, and the name is hand-painted on ceramic panels in keeping with Triana’s pottery tradition.

The Triana Bridge

An emblematic monument of Seville, it connects the city with one of its most popular quarters, Triana. The Isabel II Bridge, as it is called nowadays, connects the centre of Seville with the popular Triana quarter.

It was built at the end of the 19th century to replace the old one, which consisted of eleven boats chained together, with two pilasters at the mouths to prevent flooding of the river.

The Triana Bridge had a twin, depicted in a painting by Vincent Van Gogh, which actually shows the Carrousel Bridge over the Seine River in Paris. This bridge was destroyed in 1931.

Far from suffering the same fate as the Parisian bridge, the Triana Bridge was declared a National Historic Monument in April 1976. Its latest restoration was carried out by Juan Batanero from Huelva and today it is one of the emblems of the Sevillian city.

Triana Ceramics Centre

The production of ceramics was one of the artisan activities on which the development of Triana was based from its origins, and for this reason there is a strong identity between the neighbourhood and pottery production.

We thus find ourselves before a territory with enormous appeal for contemporary architectural action, where there are no large-scale public buildings, but rather places for alteration, infiltration, through slight modifications with the capacity to discover new possibilities in the use of a heterogeneous and diverse fabric.

The pottery production process is narrated using original elements from this pottery kiln in their original context. A labyrinthine route is proposed between ceramic kilns and old factory spaces that show visitors how ceramics were produced in Triana. We work through an archaeological methodology, without erasing temporary traces of the small memory of the spaces (smoke, disorder, chance, bricks, wood, ashes) that form part of the heritage.

Pureza Street

The street where centuries of history converge, situated parallel to the river and along which you can find emblematic buildings such as the parish church of Santa Ana and the chapel of the Marineros.

Here resides the most famous neighbour of the neighbourhood: the Virgen de la Esperanza (of Triana). Every early morning of Maundy Thursday, the brotherhood of Esperanza de Triana makes its procession to the Holy Cathedral of Seville.

That night the street becomes a hive of faith and a shower of petals as the Señor de las Tres Caidas and the pallium of Hope pass by.

Triana Flamenco Theatre

It is a new stage dedicated to song, dance and guitar in the heart of the Triana quarter, the historic cradle of flamenco.

With a design inspired by the Seville of 1929, state-of-the-art technical equipment and a seating capacity of 100, the theatre offers a continuous programme of shows, five days a week, by prestigious figures of today’s flamenco.

Moreover, it is both a vindication of the mastery of established figures from different generations, as well as a gateway to the stage for the new talents that emerge at the Cristina Heeren Foundation’s flamenco school, the best study centre in the world in its speciality according to Lonely Planet, recognised by the Ministry of Culture, the Junta de Andalucía and the Cátedra de Flamencología de Jerez.


San Jacinto Street

San Jacinto Street crosses a large part of the Triana neighbourhood and can be said to be one of its main arteries. You come out onto it after crossing the Isabel II Bridge and in the past it linked the area with the Aljarafe area of Seville.

This pedestrian-only street is lined with shops, cafés and tapas bars. It is ideal for a short break to taste the most typical flavours and to see the locals going about their daily lives.

You can also visit the Church of San Jacinto, located on the same street and built by the Dominican Order in the 17th century.

Betis Street

This street is possibly the most depicted street in the Triana quarter. Situated right on the banks of the Guadalquivir River, it is the most visible from the Muelle de la Sal on the opposite bank.

Its row of colourful houses is one of the most recognisable elements of this neighbourhood and features in thousands of photos taken by both Sevillians and visitors from Seville.

Betis Street is also known for its numerous bars and restaurants. It is the ideal place to go out and enjoy one of its many terraces overlooking the river. Framed between the Puente de Isabel II – the famous Puente de Triana – and the Puente de San Telmo, this is one of the streets you can’t miss.

Altozano Square

The Triana district in Seville is located next to the Guadalquivir River, which, especially during medieval times, gave it a special relevance, as did El Altozano, also in the Triana district, and it is from this high ground that the boat bridge started, thanks to which the Triana district could be connected to the rest of Seville.

And it was the Plaza del Altozano where the most important shopping area of the Sevillian quarter was located, making it a centre of reference.

Moreover, the square was also very important because it was located just at the end of the Triana bridge. This was the destination of countless travellers on their way to Seville.

The whole history of the Triana neighbourhood in Seville, not just that of the Altozano, captures the visitor from the moment he or she first sets foot in the quarter.
In this corner of Seville is the beautiful building of the Murillo Pharmacy, built in 1912 by José Espiau y Muñoz.

Also in the Plaza del Altozano is a sculpture of Juan Belmonte, a bullfighter with deep roots in the Triana quarter. The sculpture was made by Venancio Blanco and was inaugurated in 1972. There is also another sculpture dedicated to Flamenco and the house of Japón Chaves.

Another of the things to see in the Plaza del Altozano is the Carmen Chapel. Built by the architect Aníbal González, it was inaugurated in 1928 and also has an altarpiece of the Virgen del Carmen.

St George's Castle

Bathed by the banks of the Guadalquivir, and in a peaceful little garden, is the entrance to an interpretation centre of the ruins of what was once the dreaded Castle of San Jorge, where the museum of the Inquisition of Seville is located.

The mournful past of St George’s Castle is mainly due to the fact that it was the seat of the Tribunal of the Holy Inquisition in Seville, one of the “darkest” periods in the Sevillian capital.

The former headquarters of the Inquisition in the Andalusian city is preserved under the Triana Bridge, a restored space where we can still find some of the rooms of this institution, such as the dungeons. A place which is still attractive because of its link to history, and therefore becomes a place of interest in Seville. 

After a period of neglect, in 1481 St. George’s Castle was occupied by the Court of the Holy Inquisition. The institution was housed here until 1785.

Our Lady of the O Walk

o named since 1963 in honour of the image of the Virgen de la O, a devotion deeply rooted in the Triana quarter, and which is worshipped in the parish church of the same name, located in the parallel Calle Castilla.

The Lady of the O Walk runs along the river from the Isabel II Bridge towards the Cristo de la Expiración Bridge. Next to it is St. George’s Castle, the former seat of the Inquisition and a recommended visit for anyone who wants to learn a little more about this part of the city’s history.

It also leads to the small Callejón de la Inquisición, through which prisoners who were to be executed were brought out.

On Sunday mornings, this promenade hosts a small art fair, where you can enjoy an exhibition of works and paintings by local artists. So come and enjoy a stroll along this quiet riverbank.
