What a great barrio! it pays to spend an hour or two here and just wander the small streets. You can feel the spirit of the original times

Truly unique - you most certainly will get Los but that is half the fun. Tthe hospital de venerables was well worth the visit!

It is a quaint little area with lots of little shops selling a variety of trinkets. Some very cool accessories for the ladies that you won't get anywhere. Its a fun place to wander and get lost. Since its not that big, you won't get too lost.

Great narrow little streets, interesting shops and restaurants, and a few little squares/parks. It's near the Alcazar and the cathedral area.

No shortage of shops, bars and cafés. Old city charm around every corner great place to explore with the family. Lots of little streets. Many of the entrance ways to the houses are covered with beautiful tile. You can find houses and churches in the old city to tour as well.

If you don't roam the Barrio Santa Cruz, you've pretty much missed Seville. Tapas is a must and if you want to pretend you're a local, have a drink at the corner of Mateos Gago and Rodrigo Caro- everybody else does.

Make sure you start this walk with an empty stomach. There are so many tasty little places to eat and each one has it's special version of either the local Iberian ham or the local version of Gaspacho, the call it San moreno or something like that. but it sure is tasty

despite the difficulties with walking with a pram over these cobblestoned streets - I loved this neighbourhood. Loads of little bars/ restaurants, splendid old houses and a fair bit of shopping to be done. would stay in this area next time I am in sevilla!
