Just imagine visiting the oldest cathedral, first palace, first court of law and many other New World firsts. They’re all waiting for you in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Santo Domingo is the oldest city in the western world. It was the first colony discovered by Admiral Christopher Columbus more than 500 years ago. The colony grew rapidly as other Europeans raced into the region in search of excitement and riches.
Today thousands of visitors pour into the country to take advantage of the tropical climate. But many of them include a stop in the city’s compact district, known as the Colonial Zone. Here they can see more than 300 historic sites built during the earliest days of the western world. No other city in the New World has as many original sites as you’ll find in the Colonial Zone.
This guide provides everything you need to spend a few hours or a few days in this UNESCO World Heritage district. Whether Santo Domingo is your final destination or a short stop over on the way to one of the all-inclusive Dominican beach resorts, you’ll find yourself stepping back in time as you walk through the streets of the Colonial Zone.
