03 Oct Tour through the neighborhood of Santa Cruz and San Bartolome
The Enchantment of the Jewish Quarter of Seville
Imagine discovering a place that has maintained its identity throughout the centuries, a place where legends live on in tucked away corners, keeping alive an era in which Jews, Muslims, and Christians co-existed in the same space.
Such a place exists and it is known as the Jewish Quarters of Sevilla. We will take you on this route in the evening and continue under the light of the moon and the antique lampposts that illuminate the streets and plazas of this neighborhood. Find out when the Jews arrived to this neighborhood, how they lived, and whether their synagogues and cemeteries have been conserved.
Put your map away, fine tune your senses and prepare to create your own experience on foot through two of the most striking neighborhoods in the city, Santa Cruz and San Bartolomé, a labyrinth of narrow streets, calm plazas, and houses with beautiful flower-filled patios whose magic has served as inspiration for great writers and musicians.
Learn about the most tragic love stories of the city and walk through extraordinary squares filled with charm like Doña Eliva or Santa Cruz, a former comedy corral where great writers like Cervantes and Lope de Vega unveiled their work. Discover the elegant patios of Seville inside stately houses and other magical places like the Callejón del Agua or la Calle de la Pimienta, whose names have a special meaning.
This is a tranquil and enriching walk in the evening where the spirit and history of these neighborhoods will accompany us and allow us to experience this beautiful place, as it should be.
