Typical tourist street filled with restaurants, bars and chocolate shops. There are also shops for souvenirs or for clothing in case you didn't bring proper clothing with you for trekking or being exposed to the winds. Nothing special on this street.

Much of what El Calafate has to offer can be found on this street or off its side roads. Lots of activity, noise - and street dogs, particularly the ‘gang of five’ we spotted regularly.
