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.

Loved the area. Heart of old Seville. Tight, quaint streets with cafes, churches, hotels and residences. Pretty quiet for the most part. Difficult to get to some places by car but walking is great. Well mapped in tourist maps at all the hotels but still...More

We loved strolling through the narrow alleyways of the Barrio. Getting lost and discovering new shops is the best way to explore it

Like the rabbit warren of streets in Tallin, Estonia, and most Jewish Quarters in Spain, Barrio de Santa Cruz is the former Jewish Quarter (‘judería’) formed 2,000 years ago when Romans ruled the region. Seville is an inland port city, and the one from which...More

Step back in time wandering these tight little streets! Lots of touristy shops but still a wonderful glimpse into another place and time!

Santa Cruz is the labyrinthine old Jewish quarter of Seville, home to narrow streets and courtyards, as well as the cathedral itself and many other ancient buildings. It's quaint and pretty - quintessentially Spanish - and lined with great cafes and cute little shops. It's...More

Walk around and find the tiny parks. Enjoy the buildings while listening to guitars playing . Drink in the neighborhood and find a bench to sit on. The past is all around you joined with the present. What does the future hold?

We took Pancho Tour for 2 1/2 hour tour of Santa Cruz. Our guide, Aitor, was very knowledgeable to explain history and myths of this old Jewish Quarter. Beautiful, serene, and plenty of history in such a small area.

We walked around Barrio Santa Cruz late Sunday afternoon, hoping to catch a faint whiff of the Jewish Quarter. There are virtually no signs, the roads are a bit confusing, and most disappointedly, there is virtually no trace of what was once one of Spain's...More

This part of the old town of Seville together with the array of other splendid attractions nearby make a visit her compulsive. Enjoy a ride in a horse-drawn carriage whist absorbing the notion of living here in the Golden Age.

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
