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.

It was very interesting studying the history behind this very old Jewish settlement. The extremely narrow alleys that are wide enough only for three humans in some places, can make you feel claustrophobic a bit. There are some very nice shops inside that served as landmarks for us to help us get out!

Tight spaces, restaurants and tourist traps abound! Be careful of the high food prices in the approach streets. We found mush better prices and food around the Alameda de Hercules, and good accommodation also.

Barrio Santa Cruz is a labyrinth of tight little passageways, full of interesting shops, tapas bars, restaurants, flamenco dance theaters, and souvenir shops. Be sure to get a good, detailed map of the barrio so you don't get lost.

This will be the part of Sevilla that I will take with me as the image of Sevilla in my mind. Small cobbled streets with bars all around

Near the Cathedral, the tourists and touts are plentiful As you move away through Santa Cruz, it becomes quieter, with less people, lovely twisty streets and nice little cafes and restaurants. Nearby parks also offer quiet and beauty. A great escape from the crowds with great sights.

Lovely place to walk around the small typical spanish historic streets. There's quite a lot of shade so it's do-able even when temperatures spike to 30+degrees. There al multiple good tapasbars if you feel hungry. You might get the feeling of walking around in a maze when walking through Santa Cruz but you'll be fine.

Has everything in ine small place: amazing narrow streets and orange trees Plaxas. Middle era houses where Jewish used to live there. Plenty of Tapas bars, and white 2 stories houses, perfect to walk around in the morning and at night and just steps away if best historic buildings and all PEDESTRIAN streets.

At the back of the Alcazar there is a small set of wining streets that was the Jewish Quarter and in now an area of narrow streets with restaurants and small houses with walls and hidden gardens behind.

We found Barrio Santa Cruz full of incredible restaurants for lunch or dinner. Menu's are posted everywhere and there is something for everyone. We also stumbled into several restaurants that had live guitar music too.
