The seldom-visited streets of this enchanting north-end district are lined with squat colonial mansions painted white, ocher, and deep blue. Geraniums cascade over balconies, and open doorways reveal lush hidden courtyards. At the northern corner of the city walls you'll find Las Bóvedas (The Vaults), a row of storerooms built in the 18th century to hold gunpowder and other military essentials. Today they are occupied by the city's best crafts shops.
