One of the beautiful streets of Oaxaca, and there are so many, just oozing charm and history. The restoration is great.

All right, its touristy, but its so darn quaint that you like it in spite of yourself. A pedestrian only street that ends at the Zocalo (the Templo Santo Domingo is en route), AdMA is lined with boutiques, restaurants, cafes, homes, squares, churches etc. Many of the buildings are constructed with a beautiful local stone the color of oxidized copper,...

Relaxing street to stroll down, watch people, peek in shops and eat a meal. There a frequent parades and fireworks to celebrate weddings and life. We found ourselves walking this street several times a day, from our hotel near the Zócalo up to Santo Domingo de Guzmán.

It's a pedestrians only street with some nice little shops and restaurants on it. It goes through the center of town, so you will be on it.

This is a lovely pedestrian walk, and definitely designed/aimed at tourists. There are a ton of shops, galleries, and restaurants. There are vendors, but most are not very aggressive - much nicer than those in the Caribbean!

Pedestrian Zone that connects some of Oaxacas highlights in an easy and leisurely fashion. Stroll during the day or at night, bicycles tolerated, but no motorized traffic

Start your visit in Oaxaca City here. From the Zocalo (main square) to templo Santo Domingo and surroundings. Walking here day AND night is a zero error experience.

I'm a bit puzzled by some of the enthusiastic reviews. It's a pedestrian only street, at least for a few blocks, so pleasant enough for a stroll. The shops and restaurants are definitely targeting higher end tourists, if that's what you're looking for. If not, you'll do better heading to the countless other great restaurants and craft markets in Oaxaca.

Be aware that the Alcala is definitely designed for tourists. Most of the stores and restaurants along it are higher-end. Having said that, it's still fun to check out the stores and stop for coffee somewhere. Santo Domingo is near the top of the Alcala. A block or two down from that there is a small park that has shaded... More
