Barrio de Santa Cruz, Seville, Spain

Located in the center of the city, it borders to the west with the surroundings of the Cathedral; to the south with the gardens of the Alcázar; to the east with the Gardens of Murillo and to the north with the street Santa Maria the White.

It has its origin in the old Judería of Seville, when the king Fernando III of Castile conquers the city, concentrated in Seville the second most important Jewish community of Spain, after that of Toledo.

After the expulsion of the Jews in 1483, the neighborhood of Santa Cruz plummeted, until at the beginning of the XIX century the recovery of the neighborhood was decided, for which the street of Mateos Gago opened (the only relatively wide street of the neighborhood ) and redeveloped the square that bears his name.
