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.

Chocked full of small shops, restaurants, hotels and the like. You can see into some lovely courtyards and homes. Admire the balconies overflowing with plants. Easy to lose your way but the alleys do have names and are labeled.

At the back of the huge Cathedral building, walk past the horses and carriages lined up to give paying tourists a trip around Seville. Continue walking, with the Archbishop's grand residence on your left, and just head for one of the narrow little alleyways ahead. This is the area referred to as Barrio Santa Cruz. There are lots of things... More

Enjoyed a ramble through this lovely cool area with little peeps into cool tiled courtyard gardens. Found some great dress shops and an amazing antique shop where we bought an 18 th C Granada bowl. Very happy

We visited this Seville neighborhood on May 22 2015. Barrio Santa Cruz is located next to the Real Alcázar .It's stands out for its 15th century history and its abundance of charming restaurants and shops, not to mention the orange-tree-covered plazas awaiting walkers around each turn. Barrio Santa Cruz served as the city's Jewish quarter prior to the Spanish Inquisition... More

We visited this area as part of another tour. This locality and its story is very unique and extremely interesting. Best done on foot since the by lanes are so narrow, it covers the time of discrimination by Philipe. The houses have extremely beautiful porticos- make sure you peep inside.

From the Cathedral or the Alcázar, make sure to slow down and take time to stroll through the warren of tiny streets that is Barrio Santa Cruz. Ancient plazas with cooling fountains beckon. Relax in a shady café, and sip a glass of tinto de la casa. Listen to the bells of the Giralda echo as they toll through the... More

We stayed at Hotel Casa 1800 in the Santa Cruz area of Seville. The BarrioSanta Cruz has a lot of the sights you do not want to miss: the Cathedral, the Giralda Tower, the Alcazar, many restaurants, winding, narrow streets, with beautiful courtyards. Everything is within walking distance.

Take the time to wander around this lovely old area in Seville - we stopped in a lovely café in one of the plazas for breakfast to relax and people watch.Life here seems a little less hectic.

The narrow, winding streets are typical of medieval city centres in Spain and still has a great atmosphere.
