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.

Seville is an easy walking city and this area is great for strolling and enjoying drinks and tapas. We spent an afternoon strolling, without a map. You learn the streets quickly based on landmarks and because it's small you don't have to worry about re tracing your steps.

The Barrio Santa Cruz is a superb place to stroll around especially during the evening. Take in the atmosphere of the locals and tourists alike enjoying a meal, tapas or just a drink. Narrow cobbled streets, traditional tapas bars and souvenir/trinket shops make this part of Seville definitely worth a visit.

The Barrio Santa Cruz is a lovely area full of narrow shady streets, tapas bars and small shops. It is a joy to wander round. Head due east from La Giralda and you can't avoid coming across it. If you get too warm stop for a cold drink and a snack at little bars like El Pasaje to cool yourself... More

On a gorgeous sunny day in Seville what better way to spend time than wander down pretty streets with orange trees.. We popped into tapas bars for drinks and bites to eat..of course there are loads of tourist shops, but the quietness of the place outshone that. A must for walking around Seville.

We stayed in this area for three months and enjoyed every day. We were close to all the historical sites, restaurants, museums, transportation and heard the beautiful bells from the Cathedral every day. We walked the narrow lanes of the Jewish Sector in the San Bartolome and Santa Maris La Blanca quarters. You feel you've stepped back in time when... More

As I understand it, the Barrio is near the Cathedral and was the old Jewish Quarter. A May of streets wth houses, shops, hotels and other surprised to stumble upon. In that fashion, it's entertaining to pass through on your way the main attractions.

A great place to go tapas hopping and escape the sun. You can walk down cobblestone sidestreets that are narrow and tall. Enjoy a cocktail, cruzcampo or wine.

Old town of Sevilla... which means a lot since the whole city is ancient. This is wher the legends of the city live and wher you can find the essence of the "beticas". You will find the square of the Skull, and maybe yo find out there is actually one hanged in abox in a wall... Find out the history... More

We stayed in this area during our visit to Seville.Though the area is touristy but its worth it if you want to stay close to key monuments of Seville. There are lots of small shops( food,tapas,souvenirs even spices) in the small lanes of this area. You can cover the entire area on foot.

Sevilles is tapas, bullfighting and flamenco. Santa cruz is a maze of alleys and streets with many tapas bars. You can go wrong. Order a glass of wine and 2 or 3 dishes then move on.
