Macedonio Alcalá — Oaxaca City, Oaxaca
Pedestrian Corridor • (W)
A traffic-free pedestrian corridor, paved with locally quarried green stones, stretching about half a mile from Independencia Avenue (north-side of the cathedral) to the northwest corner of the botanical garden, Jardín Etnobotánico. Most places of interest in the Centro lie within a few blocks of this street or the other major traffic-free zone, the Zócalo, so naturally, most travelers find they gravitate there. The street is named after the 19th-century Oaxacan composer Macedonio Alcalá, remembered primarily for his waltz "Dios Nunca Muere" (“God Never Dies”).
- 0.4 miles/0.65km pedestrian corridor that begins at Independencia Avenue and ends at Berriozabal Avenue; North of Independencia, Centro Histórico.
