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.

Great place, fab restaurants and shoppping and all the really god sights are close by. Even though it is a tourist Mecca you can still get great tapas for 2 for around €20... including a beer. Gotta go here

My wife and I went to the Barrio Santa Cruz to see the Casa de Salinas. We had a tour with Ana, who was a very good guide and explained everything to us. It was easy to find this palace in the barrio. The barrio is very interesting and has narrow streets that make it unique. There are many sites... More

It's where the action is. Restaurants, bars, people galore. Let's to choose from and great prices on food, even though they are located smack in a tourist area.

This neighborhood had many places and side streets and alleys to explore. It was well located for walking to most everywhere. Full of life and include many historical sights.

Better to go in the afternoon when the big groups are not walking around. It is a nightmare walking around what used to be quaint with big groups of gawkers around every corner. it must be hell living there.

A neighbourhood full of narrow winding streets, lots of food choices, can be really crowded, full of great atmosphere. Well worth a visit for as long as you wish.

This area is part of the historic centre of Seville (where every self respecting tourist should stay) and what I liked about it is the small but cute streets with everything looking out of a toy village with houses beautifully painted and the smell of oranges (in mid March) engulfing you from everywhere: it is simply intoxicating!!! There are lots... More

Last time we visited Seville we stayed in this area & on this visit we tried to retrace our steps without success! There are so many windy streets filled with lovely bars, it doesn't matter what turn you take! Lovely area to spend time in.

It's part of the fun to get lost in the narrow and sometimes twisting streets of this old quarter of Seville, but it still felt safe even after dark, and you will never run out of tapas.

This district despite its very Christian name used to be the Jewish quarters and it's quite amazing to observe the remaining signs given the fact Jews were kicked out in the worst manner by their very Catholic majesties in 1492 (although with their way back for a while in the 17th century...). Don't miss the Jewish tour of the Jewish... More
