Walking on this street is the most harassing experience you will encounter in the town. Go up further and visit the markets and cathedral. The town is not a place to hang up for more than a day, most restaurants are too dirty to eat...More

Lots to see and so many shops and restaurants to choose from. A lot of stalls also where you can buy pretty much anything. You can't avoid the Avienda 6 de Agosto so on your way to the cathedral or other attractions enjoy the walk!
