Las Bovedas Reviews
Lugar con artesanías a precios justos, sin embargo no está de más regatear, ya que se abren a la idea, no los ofende, igual hacer un regateo prudente y consciente sería Mi consejo! more »Place with crafts at fair prices, however it is not necessary to haggle, since they open up to the idea, does not offend them, still make a prudent and conscious haggling would be My advice!
Lugar muy pintoresco y con buena cantidad de lugares para encontrar souvenirs. En el costado de la muralla por lo que es muy fácil y seguro de llegar Lugar para visitar y recorrer more »Very picturesque place with good number of places to find souvenirs. On the side of the wall so it is very easy and safe to get to Place to visit and tour
This place is pretty cool. You've gotta wander through some kitschy merchandise but a few of the shops had some really cool items. One shop in particular, about the 3rd or 4th from the end, had a very helpful young lady with some great handmade and very authentic looking souvenirs. The deeper into the stalls, the better the items. Go exploring.
Quaint local style market, set in old cave style jail cells. Very safe and friendly area and some excellent art shops. Cons: tourist prices so don't expect any good bargains.
