Seville is a city that has an infinite number of places to visit. Countless churches with their astonishing interiors, and one of the most spectacular places is the Seville Cathedral, and undoubtedly, the Royal Chapel inside is my favorite with the Virgin of the Kings, the patron saint of the city. As we cross the city, we encounter the Guadalquivir River, which divides the city into two banks; on one side is Seville with its old town, and on the other side is the Triana neighborhood. In fact, you can still hear older Triana residents say ‘I’m going to Seville’ every time they cross the bridge that connects the two banks.
Triana is the most famous suburb of Seville; in the past, it was a neighborhood of fishermen and potters. Its origins date back to the Almohad period, where you can find the oldest church in Seville, the Royal Parish of Santa Ana, known as ‘the Cathedral of Triana’. To cross from one bank to the other, you can use various bridges, but without a doubt, the most well-known is the Isabel II Bridge, better known as the Triana Bridge. It is named after Queen Isabel II, as its construction was completed in 1852 during her reign.
Below, we enumerate some anecdotes and stories that make it so special and characteristic:
