  • One of the best avenues to do shopping and a good atmosphere to have a drink and have a good time, one of the great places to visit

  • We went several times to this famous street, on the occasion as Halloween the street turns into a parade of masked people, very nice to see, also recommended for shopping, although prices are not very affordable.
