Plenty of sites around. A must walk to enjoy the historic feel and to access sites that have a lot of charm. Many renovated

Several museums including one for kids in no more than a mile distance, great restaurants were you can try both local and Spanish dishes. The Spanish heritage is very strong and you can see that in the architecture and layouts.

Smothered in history. Love how the street got its name. Fascinating seeing how old buildings have been repurposed. Nice wee souvenir shop we found 😁 no problems from looky looky men. Some great looking restaurants too

Legend has it that the ladies of the upper class would stroll up and down this street; and is therefore named after them. Regardless, it has well preserved old colonial buildings on both sides, including the old fort. Lots of history here in every building....More
