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.

I stayed in this neighbourhood, the former Juderia, and although I kept getting lost in the narrow winding streets, I was not sorry. Full of charming shops and great places to eat, it is quiet at night due to lack of vehicular traffic,if you choose your street carefully.

The barrio Santa Cruz is just right next to the Sevilla cathedral and a wonderful place to wander, eat and shop for souvenirs. It's a mixed jumble and the streets are charming. Have tapas here or even watch a flamenco show.

We visited this area briefly (should have allowed more time) to see a flamenco show. The show was fabulous and the area fascinating. Luckily we took a cab through the maze of small streets. We ate tapas nearby after the show. Difficult to find a cab late at night, but one showed eventually. Well worth the visit

The barrio Santa Cruz was recommended by my host, and I'm glad he did so because the place ended being the place I would head to everyday for the numerous activities I could do. I enjoyed two marvelous Flamenco show in the Barrio, and enjoyed a wonderful time at the Arab baths. The streets being so small had such a... More

The former Jewish quarter of the city located outside the Alcazar walls and within sight of the Cathedral. The neighborhood is a maze of narrow streets and small intimate plazas where it is fun to get lost and find your way out. There are many restaurants catering to tourists and small hotels and shops. The popular Los Gallos flamenco show... More

The guide book explains to get here via the plaza outside the alcazar... best approach is near the exit of the royal palace there is a courtyard of sand and orange trees in the far left corner as you look at the palace back door you will see a little opening and then walk though there and a tunnel and...

Walk the streets of the old jewish quarter. We did it with a tour so we could know what we were looking at. Narrow streets and centuries of history. It's a magical place. There are so many legends around there, and many things to discover.

A leisurely stroll through this barrio will give you a good feel for the old city. Full of tapas bars and souvenir shops. Crowded with tourist from every caliber. Later at night a lot of the younger generation is filling the bars. Very narrow streets at times where barely one person can go ahead.
