Fodor's Expert Review Calle de la Ronda

Old City Plaza/Square

Here's a textbook case on how to do urban renewal: The city has taken one of its most historic streets, cleaned it up, beefed up security, and given grants to owners to refurbish their properties. The result is a two-block pedestrian-only cobblestone street lined with independent galleries, shops, cafés, and a few small bars. Flowers deck out the wrought-iron balconies and flags flutter over strolling Quiteños.
