The Triana section of Seville is located over the other side of the river between Place de Cuba and the Elizabeth II Bridge. In this neighborhood, the partying scene and bohemian lifestyle can be seen with extreme clarity.

Every night of the week, you can expect to see hoards of people casually sitting around, drinking and conversing.

Calle Betis is a street unlike any other than those that I have seen. At any given point of the evening, you will see people walking back and forth with their hands full of drinks. It's actually quite a funny sight to see. On our second night in Seville, we decided to head to the local bodega and buy two large Cruz Campo beers and sit on the cement bench running along the side of the river and just enjoy the evening. Since we were unsure what the public drinking laws were, we decided to keep the beers hidden as the cops drove by. Unfortunately, as time went on, our hiding efforts were thwarted by our own drunkenness. Then, luckily for us, these two guys and one girl sat down right next t...Read More
