This historic street is named after the guayaquileño (1832-1907) who wrote the national anthem. Narrow and winding, it has several unobtrusive plaques set into the walls of some houses, indicating the simple residences of past presidents. The colonial wooden architecture has been allowed to age elegantly, albeit with a gloss of paint. It's a dead-end street, so you get to see everything twice.
