The production centre of artistic ceramics is in the district of Triana and began in the Islamic period. The Spanish-Muslim ceramists contributed the glazing techniques to architecture, in facades, sunrooms, baseboards and ceilings. Subsequently, the Mudejar adopted oriental techniques that formed the basis of the local style. They began to make mosaics and tiles, usually painted by hand with popular motifs.
Surprisingly, today many of these ornaments are still the main features on an endless number of our city’s streets, buildings, patios and even small grocery stores or restaurants.
