Triana neighborhood in Sevilla celebrates its Patron Saint festivities, named Velá de Triana. They are multitudinous and have managed to maintain much of their original roots. During the celebrations there are sports competitions, markets, the traditional Cucaña competitions, conferences and nocturnal performances at Plaza de Altozano.
The celebration of Velá de Triana officially begins with a proclamation performed by a prominent person in Sevilla. Subsequently, they are awarded as "Trianero del año", "Trianeros de honor" and "Trianeros adoptivos". Sports activities are held around the Guadalquivir river: there are fishing competitions and canoeing races. But the most traditional is the contest "la cucaña," a sport competition where you have to balance on a barge but can fall into the river. There will also be "Classic Antonio Rodríguez Zeppelin Memorial", a 115 kilometer race with start and finish at Plaza del Altozano.
The night of July 25 and 26 is one of the most emotional moments of Velá de Triana. At midnigt, close to the cathedral of Triana you will see traditional wreath and fireworks. Later, the doors of the Church of Santa Ana are opened to the everyone, which will preside over the events throughout the day. The origin of the celebration are the festivities in honor to the patrons Santiago (25 July) and Santa Ana (26 July), it comes from an old tradition that used to take place in the Parish of Santa Ana, at the end of century XIII.
