Located on one side of the historic quarter, this is a narrow street used by the pre-Columbian indigenous inhabitants as a route down to Ullaguanga Yacu. It was later called the Quebrada de Jerusalém (Jerusalem Stream) and is nowadays the Avenida 24 de Mayo. The word Ronda comes from the Spanish verb rondar, which means to patrol in the sense of watching the city streets. In this particular case, it refers to the southbound route out of Quito. It is an attractive place and brings back memories from the colonial past and it is not a very busy place.
