Cross over to Sevilla's Triana district

Triana was headquarters for the Spanish Inquistion.
Seville's famous tiles were made in Triana using local mud.

Here's the ceramic egg holder I bought in Triana.

We wander down narrow cobbled streets, pop into some pretty churches and have a light lunch that includes a bowl of salmorejo, the cold creamy tomato soup on which I have recently developed a huge crush.

Later that afternoon we watch a vigorous padel ball match and stroll along Calle Betis, the riverside walk. From here we have a gorgeous view of Sevilla's Torre del Oro.
