Owner description: For a more authentic and decidedly less well-scrubbed experience, it’s worth crossing the river to explore this scruffy but vibrant old quarter, historically the centre of azulejo, or glazed-tile production. There are plenty of tapas bars for sustenance to sustain your ceramic shopping, and it’s fun to seek out the surviving corrales. These tiny buildings with flower-smothered courtyards once housed extended the gypsy families from which emerged Spain’s greatest flamenco dynasties.

For those who say there is nothing here - they came too early. Seville and much of Andalucia comes alive after 10pm at night! After just getting back to my hotel now I can confirm it's a great place to drink, each and chat. The later in to the night the cooler the temperature too. Many small children were playing in the streets after midnight. It's Friday night and the town wants to relax. We got chatting to some locals, one who owns a restaurant called Piemontesa (Italian) which we are going to tomorrow and one guy Nacho who is a Spanish history teacher. We had a great time comparing cultures. This was in the waterfront bars we had been told to avoid eating at. For food, earlier in the night we had headed to Las Gondolinas a few streets back to try a local speciality Confiture of Cod . More on that on my restaurant review. Needless to say a few street ls back drinks are cheap, on the waterfront expensive but you are paying for the view!

Triana is a nice neighborhood and definitely looks like a more authentic residential area in Seville, but to be true I couldn't find much to see as the other reviews mention. It's good to understand the city but don't be worried if you miss it.

This was our second visit to Seville, but this was the first time we visited Triana. It is absolutely charming - a whole authentic little world in itself. The obvious attraction is the river and riverbank - people fishing, boys swimming, dogs on their early-morning and evening walks. But the network of streets and the crazily tiled buildings are a delight too. There is an adorable covered market, where you can stand and nibble seafood and other tapas - a great retreat from the summer heat and another architectural delight.

Triana is a very unique part of Seville (or as we learned, "neighbor" to Seville) and is a great break from some of the tourist attractions. This almost hippie-esque location has some great shops and bars and restaurants that are more likely to be inhabited by locals than tourists. The key is to avoid the waterfront boardwalk, which is riddled with decent but uninspiring restaurants that hawkers will try to get you seated at, which we admittedly stopped at for lunch. We wandered in to Triana during the evening as part of a leisurely stroll while on our way to O'tapas Albahaca (random lookup but PHENOMENAL food) for dinner and wished we had spent more time going through the area. You could easily head to Triana in the early afternoon, enjoy some sangria and tapas in the shop courtyards, get some window shopping in, and then enjoy a bountiful dinner at a great value. Definitely don't miss Triana but don't plan on seeing any historical sites or artifacts. Triana is a great example of the need for a 3.5!!

We recently visited Seville to meet up with some old friends that now call the town home, they advised us to stay in Triana and I could not of been more happy with the recommendation. Triana is very much a local area with wonderful Tapas restaurants and a myriad of flamenco bars open until late in the night. The area also houses a large traditional market and a number of traditional ceramic shops, it is well worth the short trip over the bridge from central Seville.
