Cindy's and Kevin's Visit to Spain, 2009
The Barrio de Santa Cruz
previous: Cathedral
next: Tuesday

On Monday evening, we wandered in the alleys of the Barrio de Santa Cruz.

The city has been a city since Roman times, but these buildings have only been around since the early 1600's. At that time it was the Jewish quarter.

This fresco appears to have been around for hundreds of years.

This is the restaurant where Don Juan was set.

A particularly narrow alley.
A car had just driven down this alley. We didn't see it, but a waitress must have moved the signs.

This is the Church of Maria La Blanca. It was originally a Synagogue that was built in the fourteenth century.

It is a very ornate little church. It is among the earliest examples of Baroque style.

Taking a break by a map.

We attended an a traditional and lively Flamenco show at Casa de la Memoria.

Thes photos are from the neighborhoods surrounding the Barrio.
