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.

This is by far the best area to visit and stay. All the main attractions are within easy walking distance, which is the best way to get around this area. Lots of little 'gems' in little side streets. Small tapas bars and shops and some of the very best restaurants. The architecture is so wonderful.

A really nice area to wander through.Yes, it's a little touristy but as one of the other reviews said, make time to look in the churches and buildings - so many wonderful scenes open up. Choose bars where the locals go, avoid places with menu's in English as they have a tendency to be more expensive and geared for tourists.... More

definitely worth a walk through. very trendy and energetic, especially in the evenings. families will enjoy this too, very different from the sleepy vibe during the afternoon

Beautiful streets , just get lost and look at the shops. Quick tip for navigation purpose, look at the small signs on the wall that says which street you are in. Take sometime and look inside some of the buildings, they have beautiful gardens, I never really patronize the rest. as I was pretty tired of tapas when I reach... More

Contemporary and stylish restaurant serving excellent food for a reasonable price. Helpful, friendly servers. You will probably need to pre-book.

Enjoyed wandering around the little streets. It does have quite a few touristy shops but just ignore them. Had fun trying to find our bearings

Lap up the atmosphere of the area and wander around the tiny streets which is literally a maze. You shouldn't get lost but it hardly matters as you will spot something to get you back in the main area. Shops and bars occupy every possible place to tempt you in.

A lovely place to wander about, windy narrow streets and cozy squares full of places to stop and sit or have a coffee.

In case you have already seen historic centers in other Andalusian towns, it is just another one, with all due respect. So in this case I would not recommend going there specifically, not least because of the very touristic character it has developed in the meantime whereby from my point of the view the original character of this piece of...
