Just one block from the new part of town, the steep nature of this street and the fountains in the center that simulate a river flowing into the Plaza Roja, give it a special air. Well known to Compostelans for hosting many shops of all kinds, this pedestrian street is the epicenter of this area.

The Cuesta de la Camelia and Red Square are two of the shopping areas preferred by locals.
