The Ceramics Centre of Triana (CCT) is the materialisation of a municipal project designed to preserve the memory of one of the last ceramic factories that in operation in Seville until very recently.

The old Cerámica Santa Ana factory has undergone a thorough restoration process, preserving many traditional elements of the factory and creating new spaces where different activities take place: tours to the old facilities, the permanent collection of ceramics, temporary exhibitions, etc., as well as some craft workshops to reactivate the Triana pottery tradition.

The Centre consists of two floors. On the ground floor there are several historical kilns (some from the 16th century), the water well, the clay deposits, the mineral mills, the almagenas or containers for storing the prepared pigments, the potter's wheel, the tables for airing pieces and drying moulds or the board where the painters decorated the large panels of tiles.

The upper floor combines several areas with different functions: tourist point, assembly hall, information centres about the Triana district, temporary exhibition hall and permanent exhibition rooms. The latter is made up of municipal pieces that were deposited in some of the town museums, completed with works requested on loan from other owners.

In this regard, it has pieces designed by Aníbal González and which decorated the Plaza de España, pieces from the museum collection of the Seville Town Council, works on loan from the collector Vicente Carranza, the Regional Government of Andalusia and the State, with a selection made by the Professor of History of Art Alfonso Pleguezuelo.
