- Sightseeing in Seville can take several days because of elaborate hotspots that can take a long time to explore. You would take hours to truly explore the Cathedral of Saint Mary of the See in Seville. Likewise, you would have to spend a good amount of time at Barrio Santa Cruz. It is a charming neighborhood that will blow you away. The neighborhood is nothing like any you may have seen elsewhere in Spain or in other countries. The neighborhood still bears the medieval charm, you get labyrinths of the iconic cobblestoned lanes and you get very quiet courtyards where you can laze for hours. The neighborhood lanes are too narrow for vehicular traffic. You can get a bicycle however if you want. Or, you can just walk. Barrio Santa Cruz is also home to Centro de Interpretación Judería de Sevilla and Hospital de los Venerables Sacerdotes.
