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.

Old Jewish quarter, narrow streets, old stone cobbled. Amazing little squares, oranges, small bars and restaurants, very romantic. Take your time to stroll and enjoy, wear comfy shoes. Stop for a drink!
