Santa Cruz neighborhood

Santa Cruz neighborhood is probably the richest in legends and, surely, one of the most beautiful. A labyrinth of narrow streets, tranquil plazas, and houses with beautiful patios covered in flowers.

It was home to the Jewish community, along with the adjacent neighborhood of San Bartolomé. Among its members were major traders, treasurers, doctors, and artisans. After their expulsion, the neighborhood declined until it was restored in the nineteenth century and recovered its original essence.

In one of the many corners, there is the Plaza de Doña Elvira, formerly a Comedy Corral where well-known writers introduced their first work. Or the Plaza Santa Cruz, to which the neighborhood is named after and where a beautiful wrought iron cross is surrounded by a stunning garden. Find out who is buried beneath that cross.

If you encourage making the tour through the neighborhood, you will discover large sevillian patios covered in flowers; or narrow streets like the callejón del Agua, beside the Alcazar Walls. If that weren’t enough, in a city chosen as the setting for over 100 world-renowned operas, Santa Cruz was one of the preferred backdrops of composers and librettists alike.

For all of these reasons, we suggest getting lost within the streets and squares of Santa Cruz, breathing in the history and romance that emanate from every corner.
