Located in what is sometimes called the microcentro or downtown area, this is one of the major tourist attractions in Buenos Aires. The street is closed to cars but that doesn't exactly make it easy to navigate. Spectators flood the long walkway in mass, passing by the innumerable shops, restaurants and arcades. In the evening the crowds die down and the street performers come out of the woodwork. Famous Argentine author Jorge Luis Borges used to live near here and reportedly enjoyed frequenting the street in the early morning hours. The famous strip starts at Avenida de Mayo and ends at Plaza San Martin.
