Barrio Santa Cruz, Seville

4.8
#1 of 18 in Neighborhoods in Andalucia
A picturesque quarter in the heart of the city, Barrio Santa Cruz is intersected by small, winding streets and dotted with museums, galleries, restaurants, and shops. It’s easy to get lost meandering through the narrow, labyrinthine alleys that once enclosed the old Jewish quarter. Getting lost, however, is part of the adventure in this jasmine-perfumed old part of the city. This neighborhood is the location of many of the region’s oldest religious structures, including the city’s world-famous Gothic cathedral, one of the biggest churches in the world. As you search for the way out, you just may stumble upon an ancient convent, medieval palace, bustling plaza, or even a modern hotel. Pick up a souvenir of your explorations from one of many street vendors in this historic district.

    Place not to be missed! with narrow and winding streets, but at the end of every street a pleasant surprise. Houses with white facades, iron varandinhas worked full of flower. Jewish quarter of Seville

    Although summer doesn't seem that you want to walk, a stroll through a night through the narrow streets, filled with history, not cheat nadie.animaros

Where to stay in Seville

Seville's flat, grid-like city center makes it one of Spain's most walkable cities. While no part of the center is more than a 15-minute walk away, you might enjoy staying on one of the many picturesque cobblestone streets leading off from the famous Cathedral in Plaza España. Boutique hotels and historical apartment rentals intermix with the old quarter's tapa bars and Andalusian storefronts. Nearby, Barrio Santa Cruz is a bit quieter than the main plaza but still boasts the city's sought-after old-world charm. Across the river is the Triana neighborhood, where a lack of heavy tourism has preserved the strong local scene in this mainly residential area full of traditional restaurants and corner bars.
