Loved the artworks on the walls of the street. Very vibrant and eye catching. Would visit again as the artwork will have changed.

There is some great art here, but the dog poo takes away from the ambiance! Changes nearly daily so if you like a picture then take a photo of it. It is opposite the back door of the Novotel Hotel.

It's a small street along the way to some of the squares. We went in the evening-there are not lights so some spots were hard to see. Go with good light and enjoy the interesting graffiti!

a guide showed us this street - the story is interesting as this street has been dedicated to taggers to avoid damages on historical monuments ...

We happened to see this street so we went down and checked it out. I was amazed how pretty it was with all the graffiti and the amazing colors. It is worth a look!!

Best enjoyed in the day to appreciate the works of art and bright colours. Go just before the light falls to avoid crowds otherwise you will struggle to see the images with all the selfie takers!
