The street links the underground car park beneath Plaza de España, as well as the Nerja Caves Museum , to the Balcon and is used by many visitors to the town. There are open air cafes on both sides of the street, which passes underneath the town hall (ayuntamiento).

The tender for the work was won by a local company and will include new paving and replacement of the underground water and sewage pipes.
