It's a small street along the way to some of the squares. We went in the evening-there are not lights so some spots were hard to see. Go with good light and enjoy the interesting graffiti!

a guide showed us this street - the story is interesting as this street has been dedicated to taggers to avoid damages on historical monuments ...

Best enjoyed in the day to appreciate the works of art and bright colours. Go just before the light falls to avoid crowds otherwise you will struggle to see the images with all the selfie takers!
