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.

We stayed in this area of Seville and would highly recommend it. It's close to all the major sights of seville. It also offers a wide array of tapas bars, meaning that you're spoilt for choice when it comes to food and nights out. However, despite the fact that there are bars and tapas restaurants which stay open til late, we never heard any noise from our hotel or felt unsafe.

One of te most beautiful places in Sevilla, definitely worth spending a day, if not more, just to get lost and see different houses, squares, countless orange trees. A very picturesque place!

Just wander this area with its whitewashed buildings, flowers and plazas. You will get lost but that is the point. Full of atmosphere

Ik guess that everything about the Santa Cruz quarter has already been written here.
I can only confirm that this part of town is an absolute must see for visitors.

This area is really interesting. A combination of narrow street and huge wide ones gives a feeling of space and intimacy at the same time. Walking around the outside of the cathedral you can see the Moorish influence on the now Catholic building. The palace nearby is extraordinary and the architecture in general something you need to see. Ornate glazed cast iron Juliette balconies provide what may be the first double glazing against the intense heat of the summer. I highly recommend visiting in October when the days are a dry 26 or 27 degrees and just perfect for strolling

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.

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.

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.

Barrio Santa Cruz, or the Jewish Quarter, is a delightful are to wander around and explore the many alleyways and old buildings. There are many cafe's and restaurants in the neighbourhood for you to rest your tired feet.
