This is supposedly the oldest street in the city and is now where a great deal of artisans stay. The weekends are the best time to go there as more is open. The thing about this part of the world is that you never know what the business hours are. But there are so many great shops. An italian bread... More

They renewed the old houses and there are restaurants, bars and small stores there. Each bar offers different king of music. Should be very funny.

This street has plenty of history, and has been nicely restored, but it is somewhat overrated. Its definitely worth a stroll in the evening, after the restaurants and clubs have opened, but its pretty closed up during the day. The stores and restaurants were definitely ¨tourist¨priced, did not make any purchases here!

A nice street with character but we went during the day and most places were closed. I understand that it's a very active place at night but that wasn't our scene. We were warned not to go past the bottom end of the street as it wasn't safe even during the day.

The place is hopping on a Friday or sat nite but many of the galleries & shops are also open in the afternoon. Really enjoyed the dance performance of traditional folk dance & music with their bright costumes.

A fun street to walk down with plenty of action on Fri/Sat. Don't expect to eat in peace. Many of the restaurants are basically very average places trying to lure people in (hawkers with slicked back hair are everywhere) with loud music and neon lights. Sort of the old disco feel that went out of fashion years ago. Food is... More

Nice but a little run down. I would be scared to be there without a local to be with.The restaurants are nice and have live music. I went at night so maybe the day experience is different.

Two female 30-something travellers - visited La Ronda on a Saturday evening and enjoyed it very much. Had a great meal at La Primera Casa. Like any big city, you should keep your bag close, and don't go down any dark alleys alone, but in general we felt very safe. Lots of people, locals and tourists, out enjoying the performers,...

Wonderful section of old town, but be sure to take a map with you as you might have difficulty finding it. Well worth a visit.
