The Shrimpers’ Dock, in Calle Betis, on the Triana side of the river, was recently recovered as a new green area from which to see Seville.
This new boulevard, between the Calle Betis dock and the free space south of Quiosco de las Flores and the National Police Station, has now been restaured and is now the home to a variety of vegetation, including eucalyptus, silver oak, brachychiton, hibiscus, camellias and peppercorn trees.
There used to be plenty of fishing activity in this area, as along the entire right bank of the Guadalquivir harbour, as shown on a tile on one of the houses in Calle Betis: “Opposite here there was the old Shrimpers’ Dock: an emblematic part of Triana and the residence of fishermen”.
The Shrimpers’ Dock has been recovered for use of the city and its visitors, and is now a pleasant area with insight to the city’s history and a view of Seville from the other side of the river, by the river itself, in a unique setting in Triana.
