Seville´s medieval juderia (Jewish quarter) limited by Mateos Gago, Santa Maria la Blanca streets, the Jardines de Murillo and the Reales Alcázares. The Barrio Santa Cruz is the most typical quarter in Seville, with little narrow streets and lovely plazas perfumed with orange blossom. You can enter through the Arco de la Juderia. When you enter you see a magical labyrinth of little streets with white walls draped in colorful plants, iron streets lamps, colorful doors, exuberant patios, cozy plazas such Santa Cruz or Doña Elvira.
As Seville gets very warm in summer, the narrow streets maximize shade and the interior patios with lined tiles and filled with many plants and flowers are a nice refuge from the heat.
