Review: La Ronda, Quito, Ecuador

La Ronda is one of the oldest and most historic streets in Quito.  This small lane displays Quito's spanish colonial background and was once the home to some of the most influential people in Quito due to its proximity to the river.  Since the 1970s restoration work has taken place to preserve this street as well as change its image and reputation as one of the most dangerous areas in the city.  It is now home to many restaurants, galleries and tourist shops and is well worth a visit to sample the canelazo drink, yummy empanadas and to step back in time and imagine what the city was like in the 18th century.
