Las Damas Street is one of the most relevant streets in the Colonial Area. Its name comes from its history, as the ladies of the vicereine María de Toledo, wife of Diego Colón, used to stroll along this street, the oldest one in the city.

The street of Las Damas is nowadays one of the most visited ones by tourists, as it gathers many of the most relevant constructions of the Colonial times. It is the street that better shows the design of a Ciudad Colonial, and nowadays, it is full of guides and sellers trying to get clients in order to show them the various buildings of this historical street.

If you do this wonderful tour you’ll arrive to Plaza de España Square where you’ll see the Alcázar de Colón (Columbus Fortress). Don’t miss the chance to take a walk around one of the most important streets for the inhabitants of the colony.
