It used to be through this street of the historical center that you could reach the north of Quito. Due to the growth of the city, now this avenue belongs to the center and you have to reach the north going many more blocks in this direction. This street is important because it crosses the whole of the colonial part of town and also because all along its route there are all sorts of different stores and businesses, such as ice-cream parlors, street vendors, banks, bookstores, stationery shops and restaurants. The shoe stores stand out in particular, for their variety. Don't miss a chance to visit this street and do your shopping at reasonable prices.
