Povijesna znamenitost
“Santo Domingo is the capital city of the Dominican Republic, and it prides itself in being the first European city in the New World. Thanks to its plethora of historic, cultural and architectural treasures, the Colonial Zone has been designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In 1496 Bartholomew Columbus, younger brother of Christopher, sailed the Caribbean islands searching for a site where to build the first permanent European settlement in the New World. Here, where the Ozama River reaches the sea, he found it, an unspoiled place of uncommon natural beauty and a sanctuary from the hardships of travel, exploration and adventure. Within a few short years, Santo Domingo was the center of cultural, political and economic activity in the European New World. Alcazar de Colon, the Columbus family home, is on the square Plaza de Espana, just off Las Damas Street, the oldest paved street in the Americas. Nearby is the Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor, the first cathedral in the New World, completed in 1541. Today, the original portion of Santo Domingo is known as the Colonial Zone, and it remains the city?s cherished and well-preserved heart. It is a heart that today pluses with historic interest and modern passion, leaving behind the modern world and remembering a more graceful and romantic era. Unlike most other neighborhoods in Santo Domingo, you will find that Colonial Zone moves at its own pace. Beautiful homes, churches, museums and monuments from the sixteenth century are the setting of everyday life. As a visitor, you will bask in the warmth of real community and enjoy a lifestyle where the best of everything is within easy walking distance. Your stroll will take you to museums, monuments, restaurants, shopping, nightlife and more. The unhurried, passionate rhythm of everyday life here will intoxicate you in a way few can resist. But most of all, by walking you will encounter the one thing that makes this place unlike any other? its people. Warm, friendly, a touch bohemian and more than a touch romantic, the denizens of Colonial Zone have fashioned a unique, much-envied lifestyle. They consider the area a precious refuge, yet one they are proud and eager to show off to visitors. Experience it for yourself and you will understand why they say that once you have been to Colonial City, you will want to return. The Colonial Zone counts more than 50 restaurants with a big variety of food, all walking distance. The vibrant nightlife of the Colonial Zone has options for all tastes. Its bars, pubs, cafes and lounges offer live music ranging from jazz, latin, flamenco and more. And this is your perfect jumping off point for more excursions, from cacao farm tour, beach combing and more.”

Crkva
“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 Museum of Royal Houses was used as the Spanish Governor’s Royal Court in the 16th century—home to the governor’s palace, the treasury, and the courts of law. Today, the museum offers an informative overview on the history of the Dominican Republic from the colonial period in 1492 to the days of slavery, and the country’s first independence from Spain in 1821. You will find displays on the multiple voyages of Columbus, with replicas of his ships, a collection of period treasures, and weapons from the days of dictator Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, among other items. The building itself is a stunning display of colonial architecture, punctuated by vast Spanish courtyards.”
