The neighborhood of Triana has traditionally considered itself separate from Seville, while many in Seville consider Triana’s spirit an integral part of the city’s own character. The original settlement, just outside the city walls, could have something to do with its enduring independent streak. This neighborhood of fiery passions is where Bizet set his opera Carmen. Today, you’ll find churches, cafés, shops and the best flamenco clubs (alas, many don't open till late at night), as well as workshops making the ceramics for which the neighborhood is known.
