This narrow shopping strip is jam-packed with commercial high street shops like Morgan, Esprit, H&M and Mango. On weekends, however, this is hardly the place to window shop, as the boisterous crowd of men, women and children, desperate to part with their hard-earned euros, pack together on this shopping alley and practically carry you like a wave from one end of the street to the other. If you're planning on doing some serious shopping, visit Monday through Friday, while the clothes manage to remain hanging on the racks and the shopkeepers don't seem so utterly worn-out.
