This street runs directly away from Plaza de Espana and has first the well known fountain of "Fuente de los Canos de San Francisco" followed by the Iglesia de San Nicolas de Bari and of course more arcades and the lovely Plaza Alvarez Acebal.
The fountain is 16th century and has its replica in St. Augustine, Florida offered by the town of Aviles in honour of Pedro Menendez, the founder of St. Augustine in 1565.
