Owner description: The Barrio Santa Cruz used to be the Jewish quarter. The streets are narrow and form a labyrinth. It’s easy to get lost among the jasmine-scented streets… only to discover a convent or a palace or a hotel. Many of the palaces have wrought iron gates suitable for peeping into their beautiful patios. There are many small stores and some artisan shops, as well as good art galleries.

It is a wonderful and really big area of the old town. You can see a lot of colonial houses with balconies and flowers. Old roads and plenty of coffees and shops... I just loved it

Safe and fun to wander. Ran into Matedors getting into a van at one point. What a photo op!

Give yourself lots of time to amble around this beautiful quarter. Great tapas bars too.

This is such a quaint, pretty and well-preserved neighborhood that you should just put away your map for a couple of hours and wander around the streets. The colorful buildings with nicely carved doors and balconies serve as a very nice backdrop to little shops and restaurants. This is adjacent to the Alcazar and the cathedral so its easy to combine these attractions.

Go before 10 am or late afternoons to avoid the crowds. Especially avoid lunchtime if you don't plan to eat there.
