About
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.

Just wander around
Oct 2021
Very pleasant neighbourhood. Very quiet (virtually traffic free). Interesting and varied buildings. Lots of places to stop for a drink/snack/meal. Don't look at a map - just wander for a while.

Exploring the Historic Centre
Feb 2020
You can easily spend a day or more exploring Seville’s old medieval quarter. The big-ticket sights such as the Alcazar, the Seville Cathedral and the Giralda bell-tower are all located in this area. Aside from this, it is also a very lovely old area to simply wander through. It has an appealing mix of narrow lanes, cobblestoned streets, orange-blossom courtyards and nooks and crannies. Alongside tiny palazzos and tile covered patios, you’ll find cafes and tapas bars which make a good change of pace from cathedrals and palaces.

Lovely buildings all around.

Our hotel was close to this district. Walked through every day. Warm enough to sit outside in mid November. Spent hours over drinks watching everyone go by. Have been in Summer and it's much busier. I'm this Summer 2020 would be different story..
Sevilla is a city we are always happy to return to.

Fascinating labyrinth
Aug 2020
The old Jewish quarter of Seville, full of fascinating nooks and crannies. It's easy to walk down what seems to be a tunnel and find yourself in a a square with a convent or a palace.

Busy, interesting, beautiful, historical
Feb 2020
This district is where most of the historical sights such as the Reales Alcazares are located. Thus, many retail shops, restaurants and bars abound; making this touristy and vibrant. Many old buildings/houses were repurposed as boutique hotels; one of the advantages choosing accommodations in this area is the tranquil evenings.

Santa Cruz neighborhood of Seville
Jun 2019
We stayed in this neighborhood and thus spent a lot of time walking its' winding streets. Getting lost in this neighborhood (which you probably will) is part of the fun. Around every curve is another spectacular view of a church spire or cathedral tower. It is a very quaint and inviting part of Seville!

Nice area
May 2019
Barrio Santa Cruz is quite a lovely part of Seville. We walked around a few times and enjoyed the atmosphere. It is where the Real Alcazar is located. There are cafes, restaurants and bars, as well as other shops. There are some lovely squares and the famous Cathedral with its beautiful tower, La Giralda is there too. Worth a visit.
