Years and years ago, this didn't exist and what a pleasure it does. A great chance to stroll the city, eat street food, hear music, all times of day. It is a little touristy but also seems just the regular hangout. Great fun.

This pedestrian street is what makes Oaxaca wonderful. Going from the Zocalo to the Templo de Santo Domingo is a wonderful stroll, particularly at night with all the ingenious lighting system.

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!
