Overview
More
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.

It's a lovely area, historically important for its having been the main area of the Jewish community in Seville until the Inquisition. This area, the Barrio Santa Cruz, is visited by tourists, including me, because of its antiquity and history. We visited the nearby Giralda...More

This is a lovely part of Seville. A maze of streets and alleys. Forget Google Maps and use the local tourist map. Great tapas bars on almost every turn and interesting & unique shops.

Santa Cruz is the old quarter in Seville, dating back to hundreds of years before cars, so many of the places you will see are on narrow alleys - any taxi will drop you or meet you nearby. The buildings are built on the Moorish...More

Narrow streets all classified and hence preserved, make out the charm of the old jewish quarter of Seville. Best way to enjoy is by appreciating here and there what makes Andalucia's charm: exquisite private patios, flower pots on the walls, beautiful squares with stunning ceramic...More

Lanzarote is in the Canaries more than a 1000 miles from Andalusia` I have never been to the Canaries Don't bother planning tours to mainland Spain in such a short time-even by private jet you would be wasting your time
