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.

Classic old historic part of the city. This is the place to head to for entering the old Jewish quarter of the city which is fascinating. The area is beautiful with classic old buildings around a square. There were several artists painting and selling their art there when I visited. Worth the visit.

We stayed in this area and lived walking through the narrow streets and finding nice bars and interesting shops (along with the standard tourist shops). Be prepared to take a few wrong turns, but it doesn't take long to figure it out!

Well worth the visit, each time I walk through the little streets and plazas , the more I see. You can spend fantastic days there. My advise , just walk into each alleyway and enjoy

Quirky little streets, pretty houses, unusual shops, small bars hidden away and all within minutes of the Cathedral Plaza

Think a Spanish/Moorish version of Venice without the canals and wonderful tapas bars around every other corner. Beautiful churches, ancient monuments secret plazas, it has them all. Just wander and enjoy

Find yourself lost in the tiny narrow streets of Barrio and you'll fall in love immediately. Every turn has a lovely little square, plaza, bar, hotel, art exhibition and groups of people just talking and exchanging views. This is a lovely place to spend an afternoon pottering about.

We were thrilled with our time getting lost in the barrios of Seville. This is such a fun thing to do - especially as we were there in winter and the alleys were not paced with tourists. Don't miss wandering around here....and don't forget to peak into all the courtyards to see how the Sevillians really live!

There is so much to see in two square miles, that you need a minimum of three days. One week is better. Many streets are pedestrians only so that's great. Even If you were adventurous enough to have a vehicle, getting around is difficult and parking one would be worse. We walked everywhere and discovered things as we got lost... More

Our walking tour of the old town of Seville took us through the colorful, lively and narrow streets of Barrio Santa Cruz, a former Jewish quarter. You must take time to sit in one of the cafes in one of the plazas, with a drink and tapas and enjoy savouring the sights and sounds of the heart of Seville.
