It’s probably reaching a little bit to label this walking street as a ‘tourist attraction’. It’s essentially just a street that connects your main tourist attractions in Oaxaca - namely the Templo de Santa Domingo/Museo de las Culturas de oaxaca with the Zocalo. It is closed to traffic and lined with numerous shops and street vendors which allows one to meander a bit. Being a street, it is of course free to enter.

Most people consider this area and this "pedestrian street as a cultural zone. Chock full of art galleries, museums, churches, restaurants and institutes. You can look, you can buy, you can eat and drink and you can pray. Oh and sleep too as the parador is here too. What more do you want from a city?

Calle Alcala is a pedestrian-only street running from the Zocalo north to the Santo Domingo Guzman Cathedral.

The street was lined with pretty colourful buildings and featured plenty of cute cafes, street vendors, shops, and restaurants. It was a fantastic place to go for a relaxing walk and explore. It also had some great photo opportunities of the colourful buildings and amazing architecture along the way.

My favourite cafe that I frequented often during my visit was Cafe Brujula at the corner with the Santo Domingo Church. They had amazing hot chocolate and fruit smoothies.

The prettiest stretch of the street with a row of multi-coloured buildings and a backdrop of the mountainous landscape in the background was just north of the Santo Domingo Church. It made for some fantastic photos.

The street was always bustling with people and was a lively place. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and it was great for people watching and taking in the daily happenings and local culture.

Visited in November 2017.

I loved coming along this street because there was no cars or motorbikes and I could let my guard down a little.
Connecting with the Zocalo which is the main central square, it's a must place to explore.
So many interesting little places along the way as well as people who are keen to chat and get to know you - legitimitedly.
Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly.

I wished I had stayed longer in Oaxaca. Walking along this street was actually the highlight of my trip (Not Monte Alban). I prefer it than the streets in Guadalajara. I also felt safe, even at 9pm, and it seemed like I was in a different era. Would definitely go back!

City streets, in Mexico or anywhere else, usually drown out whispers with screeches, sirens, rumblings and loud, loud music. The City of Oaxaca has set aside, ostensibly for tourists but obviously for its own citizens, a broad pedestrian walk, once a street, extending from the Church of Santo Domingo to the city's main plaza, The street stones are ancient stones or look so. The buildings are handsome, mostly 19th century, masonry structures. Diners peak from restaurant windows onto the passing parade. Enormous pots holding bougainvilleas decorate the center of the street. Crowds of people, morning into night, stroll. And whether the city designed the street this way or not, a stroller who listens carefully can hear the city whispering. Lovers trade serious talk and giggles. Families share family news. The insistent SSSHaa of a language made for whispering--Zapotec-- mixes with Spanish, itself a private tongue. When you come some evening to walk down or up the Andador, be sure to listen for the whispers.

This street runs throughout Oaxaca Centro. You can walk all the way down from Church of Santo Domingo to the Zocalo. Wonderful pedestrians-only street. Restaurants, stores, museums. The core of the city. great area to jog in the morning and strall at night.

No traffic. Frequent parades and people in early November and a great experience. Staying where we were it was just out the door. 2 blocks to the temple or 3 to the market and square. Best location in town and teh pedestrian only walkway really added to the charm and safety of our whole visit. Coffee shops, shopping, restaurants, cultural activities and structures, people watching all along the entire length. Was on this every day or our stay. Easy artery right through Centro. Enjoy it. Our hotel was perfectly located.
