Great spot to congregate during the Day of The Dead celebration. No cars or motorbikes allowed makes it s safe place to stroll and just watch all the interesting people.

Went twice to see the Met Opera live in HD there. The theatre is very old and elegant with comfortable seats. There are no tours so find a reason to go there.

There are interesting shops of various types along this street. Galleries of paintings are not much in the town though—most seem to have low quality graffiti masquerading as art.
