Owner description: 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.

I really enjoyed walking around this part of Seville, fantastic cobbled streets and you get immersed in the history. They have some lovely restaurants and it's nice just a see a different aspect of the city.

Tourist-filled, but still best area for wandering the streets. Off-season not very crowded. Lots of bars, restaurants, hotels, shops.

We stayed at the Hotel de Poeta which is in the Barrio Santa Cruz which was originally the Jewish Quarter. The Alcazar and the beautiful cathedral are located here. There are so many wonderful restaurant/tapa bars and interesting shops in the area. Truly, you want to find a hotel in this area. A person would be within walking distance to... More

Such a lovely place to wander around and I cannot believe that we managed to eat and drink for only 14 Euros. Amazing! You can walk around all day, find somewhere to perch and people-watch or quietly trough your way through a mountain of tapas!

To stay, eat, walk and enjoy Sevilla. Even if you just went up barrio Santa Cruz and nowhere else you'll get te quintessential essence of Sevilla. Cobbled winding streets, shops, tapas bars and flamenco music what's not to love here? My favorite part of Sevilla!

We were staying in the heart of Santa Cruz so saw first hand what an amazing area it is. Great bars and restaurants, lots of shopping and some of the best attractions in Sevilla. The roads and alleyways are very small but that is its appeal - so if you have hired a car, leave it behind - how the... More

A wonderful experience walking over ancient winding cobblestone streets, stop at an outdoor cafe in a beautiful plaza for a cava and some jamon, don't worry about exactly where you are, because eventually all roads lead back to the Cathedral. :)
