Quito's oldest street: La Ronda - A narrow, winding street, obviously very Spanish by name and by the characteristic style of old houses, is of pure indigenous origin. Presumably this small street goes back all the way to 1480, when the Incas first came to Quito. The second moment in the history of Street La Ronda was when the Spanish gave it its name as what we know it until these days. La Ronda comes from the traditional nightly rounds done through the city as of 1580.
La Ronda is one of the most traditional streets of Quito, not only for being the oldest and one of the most beautiful of the capital of Ecuador (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), but for being the bohemian heart of the historic, gathering place for painters, writers and poets of the 30s. In the houses of this narrow street many of the traditional folk songs were written and on its walkways politicians, romantics and bohemians spent their time. Today, La Ronda has regained its charm with galleries, cafes, bars and shops that have moved into its historical houses.
