La Ronda, 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.

  • We were there on a Sunday morning and Ronda was almost deserted. The artisan workshops were open but no-one working. However, the everpresent Tourist Police were still very visible. 
  • Many times we have paseado by the round, is a site very nice. Remember the Quito of yesterday admiring their homes, streets, paintings and taste various dishes typical. It is very interesting to know so many anecdotes of the different characters of the colonial era.
