Latest reviews for places in Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz is undoubtedly one of the most popular areas of Sevilla for tourists. This is the prettiest and one of the most historic areas, full of winding cobbled streets, narrow alleys and hidden little plazas. It is also an area of contrasts, with the local population enjoying splendid mansions or rickety little terraced houses. With a holiday apartment in Santa Cruz from 9flats you could soon have these people as your neighbours as you enjoy living among the local community. A holiday apartment in Santa Cruz from 9flats is a great way to see Sevilla from a local perspective, pick up some tips on the city and enjoy absorbing the culture just as much as you love visiting the sights. Your holiday accommodation in Santa Cruz is in this way much like couchsurfing in Santa Cruz but offers far more comfort and privacy in your own room or apartment.
Exploring the area from your holiday apartment in Santa Cruz
Santa Cruz was once the old Jewish quarter of Sevilla and some of the churches were in fact once synagogues. It has some fabulous sights, like the covered passageway of the Juderia and its wonderful views of the cathedral. There are lots of little squares, shaded with orange trees, and narrow lanes where the houses lean across above to almost touch each other. Wandering the streets, you will find ancient palaces, churches and bars and some little curio shops among the usual tourist haunts. The painter Murillo was born here and there is a small museum at his house in Calle Santa Teresa.
Enjoying the city from your holiday accommodation in Santa Cruz
One of Sevilla’s main sights is the cathedral, built on the site of a 12th century mosque. It is a huge building with a nave 42 metres high. It is now reckoned to be the largest church in the world, bigger even than St Paul’s in London and St Peter’s in Rome. The Giralda was once a Moorish minaret to call the Muslim faithful to prayer. The Alcazar was also once a Moorish fort and is now the oldest royal palace in Europe. Try visiting the Mateas Gago area for the best selection of restaurants in the city and visit the Archivo de Indias for an incredible record of Spain’s conquest of South America.
Choosing another area in Sevilla
If you are looking for a holiday apartment in Sevilla in another central and historic area, then a holiday apartment in El Arenal would be a good choice. Adjacent to Santa Cruz, this is the old port area and holds the historic Royal Shipyards. It also features the 13th century Torre del Oro, a Moorish watchtower and is the site of La Real Maestranza, the second largest bullring in Spain.
