Museo de la Cerámica de Triana
Museum in Seville
The Triana Ceramic Center is a museum created in 2014 by the Seville City Council. Since Roman times Seville has been famous for its azulejos – ceramic tiles and now it has a ceramic museum created in the old Santa Ana factory, located close to Triana Market and Castillo San Jorge in Trianal Bario, and was one of the last ceramic production centers in Seville.
The museum is a modern display and uses audio-visual presentation to good effect, from old black-and-white footage of mud being shoveled and carried by mules; potters making pieces on their wheels; colored pigment in jars; ceramics being painted by artisans.
