It is a lovely space, pleasant and relaxing in the centre of the city.

A great wrought iron cross dominates the garden. Known as Cruz de la Sierpes it was crafted in 1692. This proper name arises from the fact that it was originally placed at the junction of C. Sierpes and C. Rioja.

After almost two and a half centuries it finally arrived at its present location in 1921.

Plaza de Santa Cruz is a lovely little square. It is probably full of history, as it has seen many conquerors come and go, with Christians the last to reclaim it. It is nicely landscaped and if you want some peace and quiet this would be a good spot, except when tourist groups arrive...

This is a beautiful stop in a gorgeous neighborhood. There’s a beautiful iron sculpture in the center of the plaza. We enjoyed the architecture of the homes in the area. If you’re headed to the park, you should definitely stop by this plaza.

This is a beautiful small area. The area where the local painter is buried. This was a Muslim area then Jewish and now Christian with the famous cross.

A small yet charming place, every step and sight is a reminiscent of the moorish culture. Really enjoyed wandering aimlessly. What an amazing experience

This plaza should be on your walk as you go about the Barrio. The French consulate there is very attractive, and the park is a good place to rest your feet. There is a tombstone placed by the Academy of Fine Arts of Seville in 1858 that reminds us that in that place, where the primitive church of Santa Cruz was , the remains of the Sevillian painter Bartolomé Esteban Murillo were buried

The Plaza of Santa Cruz (the Holy Cross square) is the most emblematic square in the Santa Cruz neighborhood and, perhaps, of the whole city of Seville. It is sang in tenths of songs. It is a beautiful and well treated square, with beautiful gardens and a magnificent iron cross in the middle. There is a lot of history there. Most tourists go there to see the cross, but there is more laying underneath. Although the square dates from 1918, the place has been important for many centuries. It was the placement, until the 13th century of one of the important mosques of the city (the Mosque Street -calle Mezquita - nearby is proof of that time). In 1248, when Christians conquered Seville, the mosque was given, together with other two locations, to the Jewish community. One of the three most important synagogues of the Juderia (Jewry) was placed there. In 1391, after the great pogrom, in which the Christian population killed in one day more than half of the 20.000 Sevillian Jews and basically put an end to the Jewry, the space became a Christian church (the original church of Santa Cruz, before it was moved). In this church, the painter Murillo was buried in 1682 - there is a plaque commemorating the event on the wall of one of the houses around the square. For Jewish people, there is no other better place of remembrance of a time when the large community of Spanish Jews started to be eliminated in Spain (1391-1395 - close to 200.000 Jews killed all over Spain), putting an end to a distinguished part of Spanish society that lived in Sepharad, successfully, for at least 1000 years. Go there and live a little stone for the ancestors.

Historic square located in the heart of the neighborhood with a wrought iron cross in the center.
This square fully represents the style of the Andalusian city with its alleys and alleys and the various influences it has had over the centuries!

Nice, cozy place with orange trees and some ornaments. In the old center of Santa Cruz. Many groups of tourists and therefore difficult to see everything
