Owner description: 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.

“Must see”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

This area has so much charm--you have to visit it. There are great little shops and outdoor cafes. The roads are extremely narrow--not really suited for cars but great area to wander around and soak in the atmosphere. If you are there around dinner time--Try San Marco's--the food is really good.

When in Sevile just take time to wander through this old part of the city.
There are many quaint shops and cafe's as well as souvenir
It used to contain the former Jewish area but there is nothing left of historical importance

“Nice walk!!!!”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

It was a very nice walk from the Cathedral of Sevilla via Santa Cruz neighborhood to Plaza de España and Maria Luisa park. Lots of gift shops and nice balconies with lots of flowers hanging down, narrow streets that you could jump from one balcony to another :-), colorful and old building...However, I have seen better though but each has its own charm.

I had a far memory of my last stay in Seville and the Barrio de Santa Cruz had not a prominent place. In this visit we have walked for two days through its squares and cornes and i can say this is one of the most charming historic districts in Spain and in Europe. It is true that crowds of tourist invade it daily (and nightly), but this fact does not dimish the magical charm of the place, that is also a meeting place for sevillians. Hundreds of tapa bars, of course (some of them very expensive, it is true, others good value).
