Every city has its Triana. A picturesque little neighbourhood on the west bank of the Guadalquivir, this is a fiercely independent part of the city that has its own distinct character, its own unique way of doing things and its own mentality. ‘Quirky’ isn’t the right word, but this is definitely different. This is where Seville comes alive in the most vibrant of manners, with many of the best bars in town found on this side of the river. Triana is everything you want an old Gypsy quarter to be.
