We see an unfinnished street view panorama of the Avenida Isabel La Catolica in the Centro Histórico (the historic colonial centre) of Mexico-City. On the right side the street is crossed by the Avenida 5 de Mayo which leads towards the Zocalo (the main square of mexican cities, where you can also find the National Palace (Palacio National) of Mexico) with the tower of the Mexico-City Metropolitan Cathedral in the background. On the left corner we see the Calle de Tacuba crossing and here Isabel La Catolica ends. The street continues northwards as Avenida República de Chile. This street block mainly features smaller side street shops, while the well known shops can be found along 5 de Mayo and Avenida Francisco I. Madero situated one block to the south.
The street is named after Isabella I. of Castille, wife of Ferdinand II. of Aragon, whose reforms and political actions had a great impact on spanish history. Crucial for Mexico was of course, that she and her husband financed the discovery of America with the seafarings of Christopher Columbus.
