Triana Bridge and Guadalquivir river at night in Seville.

Seville – Guadalquivir River

Seville owes its fortune to the river that runs through it, the Río Guadalquivir. The river is navigable from Seville to its mouth on the Atlantic Ocean. After the discovery of America, the river harbor of Seville was considered the safest port to bring the riches from the New World, beginning its Golden Age.

For me, the promenade on the banks of the Guadalquivir River between the ancient watchtower Torre del Oro and the Triana Bridge represented a pleasant diversion to the narrow alleys and the impressive monuments of the old town. An excellent opportunity to show the fantastic clear sky that I found in Seville in mid-December.
