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.

“Nice area for a park and something to eat”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2013

To experience the heart of any city you have to walk and enjoy the streets. We had a great two hours walking around these streets looking at the shops and beautiful architecture and the food.
Only minutes from the cathedral worth a visit. Truly beautiful city of Spain.

“Important part of Seville”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2013

To visit the Real Alcazar and the Cathedral requires walking through these streets, so we might as well stroll around this area, to see the buildings, the shops, the horse carriages and the restaurants. It can be easy to lose direction meandering through the narrow streets.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 14, 2013

Getting picky though enjoyed but expected more, make your own mind up. After Granada and Cordoba guess we were spoilt.

“We stayed here and liked it very much.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2013

Tiny twisty streets cobbled squares. Restaurants and tapas bars and all within a stones throw f the cathedral and the Alcazar. Very medieval feel. Also close to Murillo gardens.

“Be sure to learn the history of the Jewish Quarter”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2013

The Barrio is a beautiful place to wander around and get lost... But be sure to stop and visit the Interpretive Center "Juderia de Sevilla" on Calle Ximénez de Enciso, 22-Ac. It is important for everyone to remember the story behind the Barrio.
