The Barrio Santa Cruz used to be the Jewish quarter. The streets are narrow and form a labyrinth. It’s easy to get lost among the jasmine-scented streets… only to discover a convent or a palace or a hotel. Many of the palaces have wrought iron gates suitable for peeping into their beautiful patios. There are many small stores and some artisan shops, as well as good art galleries.

If you are looking for restaurants or bars: here is the place to be! Especially in Calle Mateos Gagos we found nice places to eat and, not very expensive nor cheap. The small streets with touristic shops are nice to wander around in.

I loved the quirky winding streets, the small arches and squares. Every corner hides a surprise, a nice place to eat or a cute fountain. Go with a lover for a romantic walk.. This place provides a kissing corner every 10 steps you take!

Loved staying in the Old Jewish Quarter. The labyrinth of narrow streets and alleys were designed to offer protection from the oppressive sun of the Sevillian summer. Today, the cobblestone maze opens up to garden filled plazas and tapas bars. The elegant Plaza de Doña Elvira has a beautiful collection of azulejos (tiles), orange trees, fountains, and benches. Besides these... More

This place is full of small shops hidden in these alley way style streets. Traditional music and dancing along with great tapa bars/restaurants.

We were able to see the Cathedral with the Plaza de la Virgen de los Reyes and Plaza del Triunfo, a 12th century Moorish water pipe, the Plaza de la Santa Cruz (with the... More

We visited because this was the old Jewish quarter. It was packed with tourists and apart from some interesting shops we saw little that was unusual. Visit if you have time, perhaps if we'd had a guide giving us some historical tidbits we'd have found more meaningful.
