Seville Episode 07 Triana

The ‘other’ side of the river

We cross the river Guadalquivir to the ‘other’ side, the former working class district of Triana which has always been a little set apart from the rest of the city. It wasn’t until the mid nineteenth century that a stable bridge was built to link Triana and Seville! Hear about its Moorish and gypsy roots, its links to Christopher Columbus and its critical role in Seville’s world-famous ceramics industry. Find out about its ‘endearingly scruffy’ atmosphere and how it is the place where two of Andalucia’s most important cultural traditions are thought to have begun: flamenco and bull-fighting.
