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.

Awesome small streets and alleys with restaurants and bars perfect for spending time soaking in the atmosphere of Seville and just people watch. Prices can be high but you will always find an option. Lots of character.

Although the more famous attractions are great, we happily spent many hours leisurely wandering the small alleyways in this fantastic part of Seville. Admire the buildings, find a secluded courtyard, enjoy a nice Tapa or drink - all well away from the hustle of the...More

My review of the Old City in Cordoba was entitled "Aimless Wandering" hence the title of this review. In fact I could almost replicate that review here. However, we found this "old city" even more remarkable and more fascinating and consequently we wandered even more...More

We stayed right in the heart of Santa Cruz, only a few minutes walk to the Cathedral. Full of narrow alleys and passages and plenty of little bars, shops and cafes. It's busy and buzzing but at least there's not so much traffic here.

No map can help you get around in the Barrio Santa Cruz, but that is half the fun. After a little time wandering, you do figure out the general rhyme and reason of all the narrow streets. And you then start to find the hidden...More

I enjoyed taking my time wandering through the narrow, interesting streets of el Barrio Santa Cruz. The buildings are gorgeous, old, and it's like a maze, discovering plazas here and there.

This area was one of the highlights of our trip. We enjoyed the narrow lanes and the many shops and restaurants. Very Old World feel. It was also a lot less crowded than most other tourist areas.

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
