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.

You should have a guide or a guide book for your first walk this maze of winding, narrow streets so you can get a sense of the history, but on your second just walk around taking in all the shops, plazas, and if you're there at the right time of year (we were), the amazing scent of orange blossoms that...

We spent many hours in Barrio Santa Cruz during our first trip to Seville this week. We loved just wandering around and getting a bit lost and finding so many pretty photo opportunities. This area was one of our highlights of Seville. We ate out at Café Alianza in Barrio Santa Cruz twice (in five nights!) which we highly recommend;... More

The parks and gardens in this area are fabulous. Even our taxi driver told us we were staying in one of the nicer areas of the city,

Just wander the alleys of this neighborhood and you will be reminded of Venice, Italy-except the people here are much nicer!

Lovely to walk around and window-shop or eat tapas. Beware of authentic-looking spices and teas - several shops have exactly the same ones so they're not as special as they appear to be. Some restaurants don't do tapas and seem to close earlier. We were surprised that when we walked past they were already removing the terrace at about midnight.

This is the Seville you see in the pictures. We felt you really get the ambiance at night in this city. The Cathedral is all lit up and the city vib is at its best. The narrow streets with little shops sell typical Spanish wares. A very pretty place.

Barrio Santa Cruz consists of narrow, winding streets and small squares with bars, restaurants and cafés. Quite nice for a walk.

We are staying in Santa Cruz, in a home bordering on the wall of the old city. We're able to walk to all the major attractions in Sevilla, and the area itself is a must see: beautiful, old winding streets, tapas places, music venues, etc. The history of Santa Cruz is very interesting.
