There small shops to buy handcraft gifts. Shops were not duplicate the other ones. Shops open on Sundays and open until 10pm. There were restaurants and pubs around. Some of the pubs visited and were not good. For dinner, Adelina is recommended.

Or I Didn't find the street. I went after Florida street, 3 or 4 blocks after and found nothing. There was one restaurant or 2 may be, but I imagined a street full of night-life.
