Very interesting maze to get lost in, but don't forget your map or you'll have a nightmare! Some interesting shops and curious buildings will keep you entertained. Beware of the cars zooming through the streets without pavement, bit precarious!

We enjoyed exploring this old town part of Seville although the exceptionally high heat wasn't enjoyable. The cobble stone streets and shops were neat to explore as well as some of the sights like the cathedral. We stayed in the spacious Apt 4, Plaza de Santa Cruz which was a great location and was very clean, had a washer (no... More

Get an offline app like Citymaps2Go so that you'll know how to get out of the maze. From there, get lost inside the small streets of Barrio Santa Cruz. As much as possible, avoid the shopping streets and go to the places where the locals hangout. Try the tapas of the small bars.

You can wander for hours in this area of old Sevilla. Take a good map, you can get one in the town square. There are so many little shops and restaurants. Very interesting area. Street signs are located above the first floor on the walls at the corners of the streets. Try to keep your bearings as it is quite... More

Barrio Santa Cruz is the must see area of the wonderful city of Seville. Narrow streets, Tapas bars, little squares and courtyards, ancient buildings all add up to make this a very special place. Very atmospheric and busy area but it is always possible to find a nice quite corner to sit and relax. Very close to the shopping area.
