A great museum to learn about the history of our colonizers. It's also very close to a lot of restaurants that open after noon.

Point of Interest
“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.”

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.”
