Walk 2 info

A generally level walk consisting of four blocks and four noted historical sites: The San Francisco plaza and Church, Angela Peralta Theater, The Bellas Artes facility and La Concepcion (‘the Nuns’) church in addition to noted restaurants and stores, many situated in inviting plazas. An hour’s walk for ‘strolling and shopping’.

This route is enjoyable for its diversity of shops and restaurants. You will encounter two cozy plazas with interesting boutiques and cafes. San Francisco Church and Plaza, plus the Bellas Artes School with its galleries and the nearby Angela Peralta Theater. You’ll find “Chelo’s” famous drug store, the Canal family’s impressive 18th century mansion, a liquor store, and a number of good restaurants like El Tomato. The businesses along Canal and San Francisco Streets are located in converted colonial homes. Start in front of La Parroquia with your back to it, head to your right and enter the Portales de Guadalupe (as you did on Walk One), then go to the corner of Relox and turn right into San Francisco Street.   

Follow this map to take this meandering walk which begins on the corner of San Francisco and Relox Streets, following San Francisco.
