Santa Cruz District Tips (54)

Santa Cruz

Real neighborhood or "Andalusia" thematic park? Santa Cruz district left me that question, and I honestly can't quite answer it completely. While certain areas of the district looks like if they were built to fit into the preconceived idea of the visitor about what Spain should look like, other areas, like the ones surrounding San Bartolome church, are still full of the charm that characterized the old Jewish neighborhood of Sevilla. But don't get me wrong: I totally recommend you to fully explore the area, and to visit the treasures it holds, such as Santa Maria la Blanca (an ancient synagogue, and one of Sevilla's finest churches). Just don't believe that the rest of Sevilla is like that

Andalousian streets and squares

This is probably the most picturesque part of Sevilla. It was built on the ancient Jewish quarter. The name Santa Cruz comes from the iron cross on the Plaza Santa Cruz. The best way of exploring this district is to get lost in its narrow streets and enjoy the peace of the beautiful squares. Do I need to say that this is one of the most touristic places of Sevilla? I was there in March, fortunately it wasn't too crowded back then.
You can find some more pictures of the Barrio Santa Cruz in my travelogues.

The Oldest District in Sevilla

The Barrio Santa Cruz district is the oldest area in Sevilla. Located just behind the Alcázares Reales - the historical center of Sevilla, the area is made up of narrow streets lined with balmy trees. Lovely houses with leafy patios and wrought-iron balconies - once a Moorish and Jewish enclave - also dot the entire area. Kewl little squares/ courtyards with swaying palm trees and colorful flowers decorate this entire area.

A sight to behold!

Sevilla tiene un color especial

The first thing we did when we arrived to Sevilla on Friday night was to go to the Cathedral and Giralda, and from there to the neighbourhood of Santa Cruz (the old Jewish Quarter).

We walked along the little streets, and its patios, balconies, flowers ..... just lovely..

Barrio de Santa Cruz

Sevilla's old Jewish district is full of narrow alleys that twist and turn in a maze of whitewashed walls, flowers, restaurants, shops and beautiful homes. While you'll find souvenir shops and bars, the majority of the streets are lined with quiet residences with flowers cascading down the white walls from high windows. You might find yourself getting lost occasionally running into a dead end, but I don't think you'll mind at all!

Barrio de Santa Cruz

The area immediately east of the Catedral and Alcázar was Seville's medieval Judería (Jewish quarter). Today it's a tangle of quaint winding streets and lovely plazas with flowers and orange trees. If you're not staying in the area, wander through it anyway - it's a great place to nurse a nibble or an afternoon tipple.

SANTA CRUZ QUARTER

SANTA CRUZ QUARTER
Narrow passeges of a former jewish quarter, white bulidings' elevations, lace like balconies, patios and a lot of flowers - all this reflects the colour of typical andalusian life.
It's nice to sit and have a rest on Plaza de Dona Elvira, have you ever sat on a square surrounded by orange trees and almost totaly covered in tiles??

Altamira Palace

At the northeastern entrance of the typical quarter a small square is covered by the usual esplanades, facing Altamira palace and the church of "Santa Maria la Blanca".
