This area was one of the highlights of our trip. We enjoyed the narrow lanes and the many shops and restaurants. Very Old World feel. It was also a lot less crowded than most other tourist areas.

Throw away your map and just walk. You will stumble across all sorts of interesting things which you will later find on your map and wonder how you managed to find them. So interesting, something around every corner.

From the quaint cobblestone streets to the wonderful shops and restaurants, this area is all you could hope for. Easy to walk, fun to stop for Tapas and drinks. The riverboat tour is an excellent way to get a different view of the city, especially at night.

We loved walking through the narrow lanes and patio gardens of these old quarters! We wandered around twice in our short 3 day trip. And I would not mind wandering / getting lost here once again. Quaint and pretty

You'll easily lost yourself at those streets... However, it's not a prolblem but an opportunity to capture Seville's magic!

Barrio Santa Cruz is in the heart of Sevilla. The narrow winding streets filled with restaurants and small shops make it perfect to get lost in. Have a Cruzcampo beer with a tapa and relax

This is a wonderful area of Sevilla with tons of cute little stores, restaurants, tapas bars, chance to see flamenco, and still see a bit of real Spanish life. The streets are tiny, twisty, and make no sense at all so you'll get lost, but everyone seems just as lost or are friendly, so enjoy it as part of Sevilla... More

We stayed in Barrio Santa Cruz, in the heart of the Juderia, and enjoyed getting lost nearly every day as we tried to find our way through the labyrinth of narrow streets. But that's part of the fun. Once we came to a corner where several streets crossed and found two other couples with their maps out, evidently lost as... More

The twisting and winding streets of Barrio Santa Cruz are one the best parts of the Sevillano old town. Wander around a little bit and hop from tapas bar to tapas bar while enjoying the local culture. This is a place to get 'wonderfully lost', and a trip to Sevilla would not be the same without it.

No need to have a map at hand. It is far more adventurous to follow your gutfeeling. A surprise awaits you behind every bend. Colourful, historic. It takes you back in time. A wonderful experience!
