Lots of businesses with unique products. Make sure you have confortable shoes, money or credit card and lots of time! You can spend days exploring all the shops and restaurants here. I had my kids with me and of of course they eventually got bored, so an iPad or cellphone helped (the WiFi was okay). Most businesses take credit cards so that’s a plus. You can’t really bargain with stores since their prices are firm but you can certainly do so with the small street vendors, just ask politely, I use this quote: Y cuanto es lo menos? I personally loved this place and highly recommend it, it’s a MUST stop if you come to oaxaca.

This street connects the Zocalo to the Templo Santo Domingo. It is all foot traffic so great place to walk w/o fear of cars. It is also lined with some shops, restaurants and galleries. On Saturday, it was one parade, after wedding party and so on. There are some roof top bars over looking the Templo which is great to watch the wedding partiers.

If you gonna shop go to the mercados for the best prices. Don’t get me wrong there are plenty of shops here and is about a football field in length of shops and places to eat. We spent time here walking through the shops and people watching. There is a bunch of folks trying to sell you tours and small novelties. It was a bit overwhelming to be asked and asked to give money or buy something.

It’s probably reaching a little bit to label this walking street as a ‘tourist attraction’. It’s essentially just a street that connects your main tourist attractions in Oaxaca - namely the Templo de Santa Domingo/Museo de las Culturas de oaxaca with the Zocalo. It is closed to traffic and lined with numerous shops and street vendors which allows one to meander a bit. Being a street, it is of course free to enter.

Most people consider this area and this "pedestrian street as a cultural zone. Chock full of art galleries, museums, churches, restaurants and institutes. You can look, you can buy, you can eat and drink and you can pray. Oh and sleep too as the parador is here too. What more do you want from a city?

Calle Alcala is a pedestrian-only street running from the Zocalo north to the Santo Domingo Guzman Cathedral.

The street was lined with pretty colourful buildings and featured plenty of cute cafes, street vendors, shops, and restaurants. It was a fantastic place to go for a relaxing walk and explore. It also had some great photo opportunities of the colourful buildings and amazing architecture along the way.

My favourite cafe that I frequented often during my visit was Cafe Brujula at the corner with the Santo Domingo Church. They had amazing hot chocolate and fruit smoothies.

The prettiest stretch of the street with a row of multi-coloured buildings and a backdrop of the mountainous landscape in the background was just north of the Santo Domingo Church. It made for some fantastic photos.

The street was always bustling with people and was a lively place. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and it was great for people watching and taking in the daily happenings and local culture.

Visited in November 2017.

I loved coming along this street because there was no cars or motorbikes and I could let my guard down a little.
Connecting with the Zocalo which is the main central square, it's a must place to explore.
So many interesting little places along the way as well as people who are keen to chat and get to know you - legitimitedly.
Wheelchair friendly. Kid friendly.

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 different era. Would definitely go back!
