Jewish heritage, wine, ham, tapas.
To enter the area of the former Jewish neighbourhood of Seville, now known as the Barrio Santa Cruz, is an unique experience. Churches, palaces and plazas spread out for half a square mile. Tinkling fountains, ceramic tiles, wrought-iron balconies, orange trees provide an enchantment, at all seasons, that few other cities in the world can match.
And what to say about the iberian ham! If you visit Seville you have to taste it! As our wine!
We will make a stroll through the old town of the city, which comprises the whole ghetto of the former Jewish, which is now known as "Barrio Santa cruz", "Santa María la blanca" and " San Bartolome"
After that, we will relax in an authentic "abacería" from the 17th century located in "San Lorenzo" a very typical sevillian neighbourhood, no so touristic as Santa Cruz and it has many history!
The former ABACERIA closes every thursday and wednesday. But we if your tour coincides in one of that days, the we can go to another good place.

I will like to offer you a visit through "the hotel las casas de la judería", but it would affect the duration of the tour in one hour more and it is necessary to make a reservation with time. If you are interested, please let me know, in order to include the changes in the tour and to make the reservation. It would be a visit to the best preserved part of the former Jewish community and their houses but they are inside a hotel which NOT always can be visited.
Estimated Local Cash Needed

Delightful walk through Seville, seeing both the old city and parts of the new. Maria knows her history of the buildings, monuments and neighborhoods. The tour gave us a good overview of Seville - good way to get introduced!
