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.

So many restaurants, so many shops and so many options. Come see the vibrant neighborhood and enjoy the best tapas and sangria while people watching. This is definitely the place to be.

Shops, restaurants and churches. Stop along the way and be pleasantly surprised. Avoid the shops, they all have the same touristic merchandise.

You will get a bit lost without a guide with cul de sacs and no obvious skyline cues but all is charming! Our map did not show most of the walkable paths. Cooler place on a hot day than main tourist attractions.

Although it is touristy, don't miss Barrio Santa Cruz, the Jewish center of Sevilla prior to Spain's cruel Inquisition. The hospital of the Venerables, a hospice for priests, is interesting, and pausing on Plaza Elvira for gazpacho, especially if Rocio is in the kitchen at...More

Like the Jewish quarter in Cordoba, very little is left of the original inhabitants and the area has become a collection of tourist shops and restaurants. That said, the area is charming with its narrow winding streets and small squares. Throw in a bit of...More

We walked just about every street in Seville during our stay there and this was one of the highlights. It is laid back more than most areas and you really can get lost in the maze of tiny streets. This isn't really a problem though...More

Walking around the narrow streets, following Rick Steves' advice, you get to visit another quaint part of Seville. After hundreds of years of banning the Jews, any last traces of their history is all but gone in this area.

Hi members of TA community, need some help please best budget place to stay in Barrio S.Cruz, although not too budget! Prefer near to breakfast places. Also, love the feedback on Sevilla, so do you recommend a very short stay in Madrid and spend rest of time in Sv? Appreciation and thanks in advance.

AS everyone else says, ask for - or look up to find the spire of - the Cathedral. Where the lanes open out onto squares there are often black-and-gold signposts, too
