it's worth the crowds in the heat, because the energy of this street, the architecture and food are fantastic. The church visit is definitely a highlight.

Lots of bakeries and local preserved meat scattered among souvenir shops but there are some great treasures here and a great place for people watching and trying new foods. I followed the locals as to the most popular food stalls and wasn’t disappointed.
