During the heat of the day it's hard to see what the fuss is about. Tourist shops and restaurants can be found everywhere. But in the evening the magic shroud is lowered and the mystique of the locale comes alive. I found a lively corner for my dinner - Calle Santa Maria la Bianca - (Bar Carmela - see inside... More

I felt like I was in another world wandering through the narrow streets. The restaurants and shops were very nice and there was so much to see. We went through the old Hospital and the Art display was fabulous.

We spent a couple of hours exploring and what makes this attraction worthwhile is how unpredictable it can be to walk around and explore. I saw a lot of tourists navigating their way through this part of Seville using smartphones with GPS enabled trying to get from point A to point B. It is really easy to walk around and... More

If you look over the distribution of scores among the Tripadvisor reviews you will see that nearly all rate this highly--and with good reason. Nice area to walk through, with many narrow lanes, interesting architecture, and numerous places to stop for tinto de verano and tapas. The area is loaded with photo ops. It's small enough not to require a... More

What an incredible area!! My wife and I just wandered from little street to little street, stopping in for some sangria every so often and checking out the amazing array of shops. I told her it reminded me of a Spanish Venice, with all of the winding streets and little stores and restaurants. Do yourself a favor - just wander.... More

Barrio Santa Cruz is very close to Saint Mary Basilla and Real Alcazar. It was formerly the Jewish quarter. Now it is a tourist's haven. You can get lost in the narrow winding cobblestone streets. At the same time you can search for that souvenir for that certain someone or treat yourself for some tasty tapas. Oh don't forget to... More
