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 area near the Cathedral and the old Jewish Quarter. Plenty of narrow streets and fine old buildings with small squares where you can usually find a bar. If you want to avoid the crowds there are many other areas of the old city with the same or better and not so touristy.

Tiny street all full of oranges trees! It's definately a must see in Seville! You mus. Walk around and get lost in this beautiful neighborhood, admire the tiny street most of them a car does not fit and enjoy the sight seen!

We took a free city tour around the area. Cobblerston streets, history and ceramic streets. Loved it.

We stayed in Hotel Fernando III located in Santa Cruz. Every day we took another alley to explore Sevilla and every day we discover new little squares!

Great stroll in the alleys, several tapas bars crowded with locals. We tried several bars as we had a drink and a couple of tapas dishes and then move to the next ones. Marvellous

We enjoyed this area so much that we had to book another place to stay because our airbnb was booked after our initial stay. The restaurants and shops are reasonable and relaxed, there is so much to do and see within walking distance, it is a destination in and of itself!

Walking around Barrio Santa Cruz is definetelly a must in seville. The narrow streets, all in stones, with very very peacefull squares, just by themselves arrouse a hapoyness :). Go there, walk with no map and enjoy.

Barrio Santa Cruz, behind Sevilla Cathedral and the Alcazar, consists of narrow, romantic streets between historic buildings, and connecting amazingly beautiful sqares. Full of pedestrians looking for the best Tapas Restaurants. Busy during days but quiet and secretive during night hours.

A mass of winding streets and alleyways, endless cafes, bars and restaurants. Just lose your self in Santa Cruz, it is what old Spain is about. A top tip is to visit the Jewish Museum and get the walking tour leaflet for a good stroll round. Fascinating

We opted to stay in the Barrio Santa Cruz to really get a feel of the old jewish quarter. The narrow streets and the absence of cars made it seem we were transported back in time. Everything is within walking distance. Stay here but yes there are many tourist. Gracias
