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.

“Love to get lost here”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This rabbit warren of winding streets has a surprise at each turn. Gift shops, bars with flamenco shows, restaurants with a cut-above-type offerings. Architecture that never fails to capture your interest. And the iconic tourist with a map spread before them trying to figure out just where they are and how they got there!
A fun place, by the gardens off Plaza de Santa Cruz and a block away from the main drag that leads to the Bull Ring and the bridge to Triana.

“Walking tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

Get tour from one of the university students of this historic rabbit warren of laneways and patios. The stories of those who lived in the Barrio are fascinating.
