Description

We are rich in history.  Walk the same streets as Christopher Columbus. You will find so many hidden treasures here in the Colonial Zone, the oldest city in all the Americas. Live the history.

Colonial Zone, Cuidad Colonial, Zona Colonial and once known as Cuidad Trujillo is the oldest inhabited city in Las Americas on the island of Hispaniola in the country of Dominican Republic / República Dominicana. It is a small town located in the capital, Santo Domingo de Guazmán. It was the original city of Santo Domingo before it grew into the large bustling city it is today. It is bordered by Río Ozama and the Caribbean Sea. There are many historical sites that were built during the time of exploration, exploitation, and colonization of the "New World." We have some of the oldest historical sites in Dominican Republic

 

Much of the original city is still able to be seen today. The cathedral, monastery, university and hospital are among many of the "firsts" that happened here. The 16th century buildings, homes and churches where one can see the old world Spanish architectural styles of the period. Many are still in excellent condition and are a wonder to behold.

Colonial Zone (and the surrounding sectors including San Miguel, San Lázaro, Atarazana, and Cuidad Nueva) is a wonderful mix of the past and present. The old and new intertwine to make a unique travelers experience. Live the history. Walk our streets. Visit our Museums and Historical sights. Dine in our restaurants. Meet our people. Dance to out music. You will make lasting memories. Something you may remember for a life time. Here in the land of firsts in "The Americas".

The Colonial Zone was declared a World Cultural Patrimony by UNESCO in 1994.
