Pedestrian zone with a lot of shops, coffee places and restaurants. Nice to walk during the day or also in the evening, i.e. to watch people and handcrafts offered, or step into a coffee or chocolate shop.

This street is closed to pedestrians. A perfect spot for a stroll, albeit a crowded one. This is also one of the central arteries for pedestrian circulation in the city.

It's been years since I had been to Oaxaca and this street is filled with shops, stands, and people. Very lively atmosphere and the addition of the letters in front of the Santo Domingo church add to the experience and is a perfect photo opportunity.

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...More
