The street goes through town; passed the El Convento, the Cathedral and the chapel is at the end of the street. Be sure to notice the blue cobblestones in the street.

While out for a nice walk, stop on by this street. It has a cute church at the end of it, and a pigeon park next to it. Also, there is a bar that serves you a sangria when you get a pedicure! Little shops and restaurants on this street.

Coach store down the block. Cool church, plenty of bars and restaurants in a cool location. Must go just to hang out. Real old world feel and the people are nice.

To honor this miracle he ordered to erect one of the the most fantastic little chapels of the world. A lot of Catholicism, accompanied with gold,... More

Fairly quiet street, lined with restaurants and shops (some quite high-end). Very pleasant to stroll along, window-shop and people-watch.
