“Built between 1510 and 1540, the first cathedral of the Americas—known as Santa Iglesia Catedral Basílica Nuestra Señora de la Encarcación o Anunciación, Primada de América—continues to stand tall in all of its glory over the heart of the Colonial City. The 500-year-old Gothic-style building continues to serve as the most important site for official ceremonies, and religious celebrations. Touring the interior reveals the cathedral’s ornate Gothic ceiling, colonial period oil paintings, sacred chapel rooms, as well as an area with gravestones containing the remains of archbishops. The remains of Christopher Columbus were found here in the 19th century.”

“The Colonial Zone is both an important historical site and a vibrant neighborhood that is currently experiencing a cultural and economic renaissance. Founded in 1498, the Santo Domingo Colonial Zone is the oldest European settlement in the New World. In 1990, the entire area was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The Colonial Zone is a wonderland of historic Spanish Colonial buildings and monuments. Yet, the area is so much more than a mere open-air museum. It is a bustling district filled with shops, restaurants, cafes and night clubs. The vibrant street life, incredible live music performances and beautiful parks and squares make the Colonial Zone a prime tourist destination. This amazing historical area features some of the oldest buildings in the New World. Top attractions include the Catedral Primada de América, the first cathedral in the Americas, and the Alcázar de Colón, the former residence of Christopher Columbus’ son. Other attractions include the Convento de los Dominicos, the first monastery in the Americas, and Ozama Fortress, the oldest fortress in the New World. The Santo Domingo Colonial Zone also has beautiful parks and squares. Parque Colón, in front of the cathedral, is the perfect place to take a break and watch the people strolling by. Plaza de España is an enormous square lined with some of the area’s best restaurants. It is also the backdrop for live music and dance performances every Friday and Saturday evening. The Ruins of the San Francisco Monastery are another setting for live music. Every Sunday night, locals and tourists gather to enjoy a lively evening of Latin music and dancing. Visitors staying in the Colonial Zone will find that everything is within easy walking distance. The hotels are near all of the top attractions, as well as great shopping, fine restaurants and fun night clubs. The Colonial Zone is an amazing tourist destination that offers something for everyone. ”

History Museum
“Occupying the former 16th century home of Spaniard Francisco Tostado, this striking colonial building restored into a museum—also known as Museo de la Familia Dominicana del Siglo XIX—showcases the lifestyle of 19th century middle class Dominican families with model displays of bedroom and library furniture to a charcoal oven kitchen, sewing room, and tea lounge. Items were collected from various prominent families to recreate each scene. The building’s double Gothic-Elizabethan window makes it the only house in the Americas with this architectural feature.”
