Descripción

The Seville origin story begins with the Roman and then Arab reigns over 1500 years ago. The history of those periods is embalmed in the streets and secret passageways of this beautiful city and remains its beating heart.
Santa Cruz is bordered by the Gardens of Murillo and Real Álcazar of Seville dating from the XII century. Following the length of this old city wall, we walk the streets of Water and Life, or la Calle del Agua and la Calle de la Vida, and onto the Patio de Bandera. You will learn about the three synagogues of the early period, where today we can find the churches of Santa María la Blanca and San Bartolomé, and the Square of Santa Cruz. We then take you straight into the heart of the Jewish Quarter and observe its beauty as a place seemingly frozen in time, nearly intact as it was in antiquity.

Did you know that many writers such as the poet, Luis Cernuda (of the Generation of ‘27), the American writer Washington Irving, and operas such as Figaro or El Barbero de Seville were inspired by the narrow streets of Santa Cruz? Darker stories were also born there, such as the terrible tale of Susona’s legend. Want to know why? Come and find out!

On this tour you will also learn the origin of the Street of Water and Street of Life? Who was Susona? What happened in the Spring of 1391? How did the Inquisition come to be in Seville? We have the answers to these questions and more on this not-to-missed, or forgotten, adventure.
