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. Put Barrio Santa Cruz on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Seville trip planner.

Our hotel was close to this district. Walked through every day. Warm enough to sit outside in mid November. Spent hours over drinks watching everyone go by. Have been in Summer and it's much busier... more »
