Triana Walk (Self Guided), Sevilla

Triana sits on the left side of the Guadalquivir River, a lively and colorful old neighborhood that was once the city's gypsy quarter. Triana is a district that likes to party and it proudly displays its flamenco traditions. This is one of several places in Spain that lays claim to being the birthplace of the music and dance art form.

With paved streets, attractive churches, ceramics and lots of tapas bars, there are lots of reasons to come to Triana. Stop by the Gothic-style Santa Ana church, the oldest church in the city, dating back to the 13th century. Inside, browse many beautiful pieces of religious art, including the spectacular altarpiece from the 16th century.

Walk down Callejón de la Inquisición (Inquisition Alley). Sevilla was the seat of the Spanish Inquisition, the notorious religious purges that were one of the darkest periods of the country's history. Go over to the ruins of San Jorge Castle, once the headquarters of the Inquisition, but where today there is the Museum of Tolerance.

Sevilla is also well known for its tile workshops and potteries, industries that date back to Roman times. You will see lots of tiles and tiled art decorating buildings and come across shops where you can purchase beautiful ceramics.

One of the best places in Triana for a drink and some tapas is on the Calle Betis. This waterfront street has gorgeous views over the city and is lined with restaurants, bars and clubs.
