Maritime Sevilla, the Shores of the Guadalquivir River
There was a time when Seville was one of the most important cities in the world. On this route you’ll learn why, examining the important role the Guadalquivir river played in its urban development, and specifically about the two neighborhoods that have expanded on its shores: El Arenal and Triana.
We will describe the atmosphere that lived its streets, complete with sailors, carpenters, coopers, ruffians, and prostitutes. You’ll discover the great expeditions that left from its ports, where sailors studied or where ships were built.
In the Arenal we’ll walk to important monuments like the Torre del Oro. Find out how it got its name and what it was used for. We will also show you the other identity of the neighborhood—that of bullfighting. You’ll discover the history of the distinctive Plaza de la Maestranza and the legendary bullfighters who risked their lives in the ring.
On the other side of the shore, we’ll explore Triana, a unique place filled with an independent spirit. In its most representative corners you’ll experience how its inhabitants lived, gypsies in particular, an essential community who forged the identity of this neighborhood. Furthermore, find out about the relationship between Triana and flamenco, as well as its link to the Inquisition.
From this tour you’ll take away a peculiar vision of these mythical neighborhoods of the Guadalquivir, to which they and all of Seville owe so much.
