#7 of 181 in Things to do in Quito
Day or night, stroll at a leisurely pace along La Ronda to appreciate the charms of Quito's old town. Curving its way through the city's historical quarter, the charming cobbled street typifies the Spanish colonial style of architecture. Look up above you at the colorful flowerboxes adorning many of the street's balconies, and appreciate the recent work that has restored the area to its former glory. During the day you can buy handicrafts from quaint souvenir shops, while at night you can join in the party at one of the street's many bars. To plan Quito vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.

  • This street, and others nearby, are the true reflection of the time lived many years ago. It is very picturesque and only missing see to gestes with clothing of yesteryear.
