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.

Amazing area and take the time to walk through and soak up the real authentic atmosphere, buildings and busy people. Don't forget to stay for a bite to eat, lots to offer.

The streets of Santa Cruz were charming and fun to explore. We visited during the traditional siesta time and practically had the area to ourselves to explore and were able to get photos without too many extra pedestrians. We were surprised by the little shops and bars that we stumbled upon. It stayed surprisingly cool even during the midday heat.

Lovely welcoming helpful owner. Excellent location . Good value. The accommodation not the best, but acceptable at the price. There are many things at little to no cost that could improve the experience. Depending on expectation for price I would recommend.

Narrow streets winding around the many plazas of Santa Cruz Quarter. Restaurants, souvenier shops, for just about anything you want. Flamingo dresses for all sizes.

We stayed in this neighborhood, which is so convenient to everything you would want to see. The streets are quite narrow and the buildings tall, in order to keep the area shaded; this was an ingenious idea on the part of the engineers and architects in the days of yore who constructed this neighborhood. This element adds to the charm,... More

Happily spent a couple of hours wandering around the narrow backstreets stumbling across beautiful convents and enticing bars.

Take your time to walk around this neighborhood when you are visiting the Cathedral of Seville or Alcazar to take in the sights or eat/drink in a nearby cafe. This neighborhood used to be a Jewish quarter and there are lots of restaurants and souvenir shops in this district. Beware the occasional pickpocket as this is a very touristy area... More

We did a self-guided walking tour that was proposed in Rick Steves' book. Easy to find sights, fun to visit, neat shops and restaurants.
