According to some travellers I spoke to, this street is said to be one of the most beautiful in the Philippines.  This street is close to any type of motor vehicles, but some calesa operates is some parts of the streets.  At first, I smell something I can't recognized in the area, but when I saw the horses, I thought it was the reason of the smell.

The street itself is made up of cobblestone then lined with the heritage houses of the former Filipino-Chinese traders.  Majority of the houses have thick walls made of cement, brown and red bricks; the doors are wide made up of shiny and solid woods; the sliding windows are perfectly made from capiz shells designed with iron grills and wood.  The ceilings are created higher, maybe this is for ventilation purposes.

Today, some of the century-old houses were converted into commercial shops, museums, restaurants, cafe and hotels.  Each shops are selling antiques, woven products, bags, basi, chicharon, jewelry, woodcraft and many more.  In night time, the gorgeous light in different colors in each shops added an additional effects that registers in the camera.
