Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic and one of the oldest cities in the “New World”. Here the first cathedral was built, the first governor resided, the first bishop was consecrated and the first hospital was opened. The historic old town of the Zona Colonial has a city wall, cobbled streets and many buildings dating back to the 16th century. Besides many sights, the city also has some interesting museums to show. The most beautiful corners for a Dominican Republic trip to the city are the Faro el Colón, the Los Tres Ojos Cave and the historic Alcázar de Colón Palace.
