Barrio Santa Cruz is a playful labyrinth of narrow streets, alleys, and hidden plazas dating back to the days of the Jewish Quarter in the 15th century. Today, it is a picturesque neighborhood dotted with old churches and former synagogues, white-washed houses, tapas bars, artisanal shops, and flowering terraces. Wander into the elegant Plaza de Doña Elvira, which is full of shady orange trees, tiled brick benches, and small fountains that provide an excellent retreat from the Sevillian summer heat. Another major stop is Plaza de Santa Cruz, which is distinguishable by an elaborate 17th-century forged iron cross, called Cruz de la Cerrajería (“Locksmith’s Cross”).
