wall-to-wall tapa bars, escaping into Plaza Santa Cruz, exploring the small squares lined with orange trees.

Locals and tourists alike flock to the tapa bars, going from bar to bar sampling the array of food on offer at well-known bars like Bar Giralda, Modesto, Las Teresas and Casa Robies. 

The Cathedral, Archeological Museum, Plaza Alfaro – inspiration for the balcony scene for Romeo and Juliet are but a few popular locations to visit when travelling to Santa Cruz.
