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.

We took time to walk through the small streets and see what we could find...... Just kept walking with no map just enjoying looking around. We made our way to the Juderia and took a 2 hour walking tour with the Jewish interpretation center. Very good, highly suggest as they take you around the streets and teach you things you... More

Loved Barrio Santa Cruz. Extremely touristy but it doesn't loose it's Spanish uniqueness. It's amazing if you want to pick a restaurant that serves great tapas.

We walked through the Barrio de Santa Cruz a few times during our 5 - day stay in Sevilla. It is a lovely, mostly pedestrianised area with a nice feel. Although, you could argue that this is a very touristy spot, with numerous all too similar souvenir shops, we spent the best evening of our stay in the barrio. Indeed,... More

We took a taxi from the AVE train station to the hotel in barrio Santa Cruz. You have to be careful with taxis in Seville because they try to trick you by going too slow, going around the place instead of direct to the place, and so on. The place is nice but have lost a bit of the charm... More
