Santa Cruz Sevilla Reviews
Jul 12, 2007
Santa Cruz is the quarter north of the cathedral and the Alcazar. It is definitely worth a visit, because it is the most authentic and typical neighborhood of Sevilla. The streets are really small and old, just like the buildings. In the evenings it is nice to come and sit on a terrace here, to stroll for souvenirs or to enjoy the music played on the corners.
Santa Cruz used to be the Jewish quarter, but nowadays it is Spanish, with many houses in Andalusian style, decorated with flowers and painted in white and yellow.
Take a detailed map when you need to find a specific street address here. The place is a maze! We had our hotel standing in the middle of it, and after two days we found our way around without a map. But when you first enter you might find it difficult to navigate. We got lost during our fist hour in Seville, passed by a delicious ice cream shop, but never were able to rediscover it later... Such a waste!
