Triana used to be Seville’s Gypsy quarter. Today, it has a tranquil, neighborly feel by day and a distinctly flamenco feel at night. Cross over to Triana via the Puente de Isabel II, an iron bridge built in 1852 and the first to connect the city’s two sections. Start your walk in the Plaza del Altozano, the center of the Triana district and traditionally the meeting point for travelers from the south crossing the river to Seville. Admire the facade of the Murillo pharmacy here before walking up Calle Jacinto. Look out for the fine Casa de los Mensaque (now the district’s administrative office and usually open on weekday mornings), home to some of Triana’s finest potters and housing some stunning examples of Seville ceramics. Turn right into Calle Alfarería (Pottery Street) and admire some of the ceramic facades—Fábrica Montalván at No. 23 is particularly fine. Return via Calle Betis along the riverside. To reach attractions in La Cartuja, take Bus C1.
When there was every reason in the world to stay away and see the ruins, one woman traveled to Greece to get to work.More
