Santa Cruz district : Michelin's recommendations
Here you are in the heart of Seville. It is impossible to resist the charm of this district with its winding alleys, its picturesque lime-washed houses, its delicate hardly visible flowery patios and its small squares As the Jewish district in the Middle Ages, it benefited from the protection of the Crown after the reconquest but at the end of the 14C it was taken over by the Christians who changed all the synagogues into churches. A walk in this district, the heart of Seville and you will get the impression of travelling back in time..... Start off through the Judería arch (a covered passage communicating with the courtyard of the Pavilions), and follow the callejón del Agua, along the walls. Or alternatively, coming out of the same courtyard on to the Triunfo square, immediately take the right turn into Romero Morube street ; perhaps a little theatrical but pleasant nevertheless. You will go alongside the Alcázar as far as the Alianza square, which you cross to continue along the callejón de Rodrigo Caro, which narrows little by little into a winding street and comes out into the Doña Elvira square, one of the most typical squares in the district with its tiled benches and its little stone fountain under orange trees. Then, along Gloria street, go into the dainty los Venerables square where you will find the eponymous hospital. By day and by night you will be unable to let go of this miracle of harmony...
