One of the oldest
streets of Quito!
La Ronda Street1
Why locals love it
This is a narrow cobblestone street very famous among locals because it appears in many paintings and it was the craddle of several famous poems and songs. The street has recuperated its splendor and its is very popular for local people who come on fridays and saturday nights for drinking a traditional hot "canelazo" made of cinnamon with a liquor!
Why you should visit it
This street was built by the Incas and it was part of the Inca trail which connected Quito with Cusco. The houses have been restored recuperating the typical Andalussian style with white adobe walls and balconies that seem to be very close one from another. It is plenty of restaurants, cafés, art galleries and chocolate shops!
Go to Chez-Tiff shop and live the best experience of Ecuadorian Chocolate and then drink a "canelazo"!
