Beautiful with several monuments to visit. It is a return to the past. Impossible to go to the Colonial Zone and not visit

This local historic site is just simply stunning. The architecture, cobblestone streets, the people were beautiful to me. Great for picture taking and people watching. The locals are friendly and welcoming.

I really enjoyed the architecture of the area. This the oldest street in the Americas and is surrounded by a couple of days worth of exploring forts, homes, museums and good food.

never reviewed a street before.... but this is the street where my favorite hotel in Santo Domingo is located. With so much history to be found on this street it is somewhere well worth exploring. Stay at the Nicolas de Ovando, walk across the street...More
