Santo Domingo's Zona Colonial
In this city, where Christopher Columbus initially arrived in the America's, you'll discover the hurrying around of current life being happened against the background of hundreds of years old structures. The frontier engineering, quite a bit of which today houses exhibition halls, cafés, shops, and interesting inns, lines the lanes and squares, and returns you to another time in amazing style.
A great part of the movement centers around Calle El Conde, the principle lane and a mainstream road for shopping or eating el fresco. Meandering around the different boulevards, you'll see disintegrating ruins, similar to those of Monesterio de San Francisco; wonderfully safeguarded structures, for example, the Catedral Primada de América , which is still being used today; and local locations, offering a look into nearby life. Notwithstanding eating pizza in a reestablished provincial structure on a hot night, or relaxing in the patio of your 450-year-old inn can feel like an extraordinary involvement in this lovely city. Santo Domingo is certainly a spot worth investing some energy.
