  • Although it is short, this side of a market in which many people make purchases, will be difficult to walk and there isn't much to see, but it eats very well

  • Interesting place to walk around ... especially with all of the money changers in the streets, quite a spectacle.  more »
  • They are only two blocks away, it all looks very piled, the streets dirty, while it seems cheap, there was many people eating there. We must stir since there is everything a bit. It is picturesque, but there are many people on the street and it is difficult to walk.
