As the oldest street in Colonial Quito, it's worth a visit. A lot of it has been restored and there are some nice restaurants - I liked the one that used to be an orphanage and run by nuns - and shops selling art and souvenirs. I was, however, disappointed that many of the buildings are just shells that have been painted and restored on the outside, but are still ruins inside and because it has a bad reputation for security, there are police every few hundred yards. Although this makes it feel safer, for some reason, they all disappear about nine o'clock at night, just when you need them.
