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.

A nice walk

We had a nice walk in Barrio Santa Cruz. The streets are wonderful and it was very nice to discover more about the story of this Barrio.

You cannot avoid visiting this area - it is a major tourist attraction, the whole maze of streets, including the souvenir shops and all the eating places. A lot of it is pedestrianised, which is great. I can't believe you can visit Seville and not wander around Santa Cruz for a couple hours at least. It's like going going to... More

Probably our favourite part of Seville- we loved exploring this old Jewish quarter with all the wonderful restaurants and tapas bars. It reminded us of Venice and Brugge a little with the quiet old winding back lanes - loved it! Beware of a few tourist trap cafes though that can charge 12 euros for a small sandwich.

This is a great neighborhood to stroll through for shops and restaurants. I found that some of the shops carried more unique items.

Santa Cruz/"juderia"-Jewish quarter. Very narrow streets and allies for pedestrians only. Just get lost there. There are so many different ways to fall in love with this area so just find your own. Nothing to plan... Wherever you'll find yourself you'll enjoy. Only one thing highly recommended - a flamenco show in "the casa de la flamenco"(just ask where it... More

It is nice to walk in Barrio Santa Cruz, but there are a few areas which are simply tourist-traps. It's easy to spot them, though, so you can enjoy going around without any huge problem. The Barrio itself is interesting, and rich in history. A good suggestion is to go with a walking tour so to get a few info... More

Let me start by saying I'm a well travelled business woman who knows how to look after herself and not give off signals that she is a 'foreigner abroad'. Nevertheless, I found myself in Santa Cruz one night with a hand in my bag, attached to a very aggressive gypsy woman with young male accomplice and reluctantly let them get... More
