Take a walk along this spacious street to admire the architecture of its old buildings, find a place to eat, or do some shopping.

  • Along this avenue passes great part the main line of metro, much of the trade, the Palace of Government, ministries, hotels, universities, bus terminals and the historical site of national celebration: Plaza Italy. There is everything and also can be everything. There are a lot of places of interest and also to eat. Perfect for a Sunday stroll.
