Photo: Rio Guadalquivir Triana District Sevilla Andalusia Spain

The view across the Rio Guadalquivir, the river, at dusk shows the Triana District and the bell tower of Iglesia de Santa Ana all lit up and on display. This district is located in the city of Sevilla, Audalusia, Spain.

The Rio Guadalquivir, located in the foreground of the photograph, is the fifth longest river in Spain, but the longest in the community of Andalusia. It is also unique because it is the only great navigable river in Spain, so tourists often flock to its shores to sail up or down it and savour the sights on either side. The river is only navigable up to Seville now, but in Roman times it extended much further. The name 'Guadalquivir' means 'The Great Valley' in Arabic and it did use to cover a much larger area than it does now.

The Triana District is famous for bull fights and flamenco dancing and has typically been defined as a working class area. It is a place tourists come to today to buy some of the most beautiful ceramics in all of Spain. It is a lively area for dancing, bars, and live music and being right on the river has some amazing views across the water to the El Arenal District. ... continue below the picture...
