Why should you visit Santa Cruz?

Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz is the most popular quarter in Seville and it has its origins in the old Jewish quarter of Seville. This quarter was inhabited by the Jews ever since Seville was recaptured by Ferdinand III, King of Castile, until these were ejected in the 15th century.

Located in the center of Seville, Santa Cruz quarter reaches down to the Cathedral, the gardens of the Alcázar (palace) and Jardines de Murillo (Murillo gardens). It is, therefore, a landmark and a touristic zone and it is accessible through Mateos Gago street, the most touristic and commercial street of the quarter.

While having a walk in this zone, you can get to know more about its history, by contemplating the Moorish and Jewish features that so characterize this place. Furthermore, you can go into the narrow streets, which run in an irregular criss-cross pattern and lead to the patios sevillanos (traditional Sevillian patios) or squares, such as Plaza de la Alianza or Plaza de doña Elvira.

During your stay in Santa Cruz quarter, you will feel like you belong here, Andalusia, since you will find yourself surrounded by Andalusian style houses and a pleasant and joyful atmosphere so typical of this region. Nearby places to visit are the Giralda tower, Patio de los Naranjos (orange tree courtyard), the Alcázar (palace), Archivo de Indias (archive of Indies) and the Palacio Arzobispal (archbishop’s palace). On the adjacent streets Iglesia de Santa María la Blanca (Santa María la Blanca church), los Jardines de Murillo (Murillo gardens) y el Hospital de los Venerables (baroque hospital) can be found.
