I used to walk this street with my parents when I was a kid, some 50 years ago. At that time it was Seville's High Street with many stores and lot of things to see and buy. Eventhough we visited it during the Semana Santa, a day before the Holy Friday, it is obvious that it has lost its proeminence to other areas of the city. Unfortunatelly, this is a terrible situation that is happening all over southern Europeus, big shopping malls are destroying traditional high street type of commerce. That's a pitty.
