Tiny cobbled streets, and plaques that bear witness to the famous writers, artists and Jews whose souls still haunt the Barrio Santa Cruz.
The place is an interesting glimpse into an area that was once predominantly Jewish.
There are little curio shops for the tourists; flamenco bars and gift shops.
I discovered a place dedicated to regenerating the history of the Sephardic Jews and their contribution to the livelihood of Seville, and learned how a change in religious/political life altered the city landscape forever, as Arabic street names were replaced by Christian ones as a mark of conquest.
A really informative, special place called the "Juderia with Jaime and Julie" is well worth a visit, as it gives a fresh perspective on the history and living experience of Ladino Jews, and how they lived alongside Muslims in the city before the reconquest of Seville by the Christian Kings in 1492.
All in all, the Barrio Santa Cruz is a good place to start your relationship with Seville.
