I found nothing particularly interesting about Avenida El Sol. It is a very busy thoroughfare with lots of pedestrian traffic. Several nice stores and the Peruvian Judicial Building that is pretty impressive. It's the shortest and easiest way to get to the Santo Domingo Cathedral.

Felt to me like this is their version of Oxford Street, mostly shops with solid traffic congestion all day. It's the best spot for banks (ATMs), Tourist Offices (including the official one), electronics stores and cellphone stores.
