Santa Cruz and the Jewish quarter lie in the very heart of today’s Seville and were the city center for many other civilizations who occupied these same streets over the years. Come and see what the streets of Sevilla have experienced over the past 2000 years, and take the time to discover with us every little nook and cranny full of charm and memories.
Walking through Santa Cruz, we will pass by Murillo’s garden and the XII century Arabic wall. These magical places are not to be missed and will beckon us to stumble on winding narrow streets, streets with enticing names like the Street of Water (la Calle del Agua) or the Street of Life (la Calle de la Vida) . Let’s stop and take a picture in the all-famous Kissing Corner, the Rincón del beso.
This area is rich with history and stories to tell, romantic or tragic, legendary or true. We will reveal the tales and myths embedded in the hidden corners of Santa Cruz. You will discover exactly what happened in the infamous Massacre of 1391. What do we know? What really happened? What are the stories behind this notorious Massacre that took place right in the middle of the Jewish quarter and sent many to their death?
We will also visit the three most important synagogues of that time and explore many other churches of Seville that have sprung up since. Touring this quarter will be a step back in time to see how people lived before and what life is like now. These streets are full of inspiration for many writers, painters, poets, and singers. Many directors have also chosen this location to shoot their films. They are sure to be an inspiration for you too. Enjoy this city with us.
