Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor (Catedral Primada de América) Tours

Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor (Catedral Primada de América)
Recognized as one of the oldest churches in the Americas, Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor is Santo Domingo’s most famous religious structure. Tucked into the old-world streets of the city’s Colonial Zone, Santa Maria was built in the early 1500s and remains an icon of the country’s Catholic community. Its classic Gothic and Baroque features are a nod to the church’s European roots and an extensive collection of woodcarvings and religious artifacts make a visit well worth the trip.

Practical Info

The church is located next to Columbus Park between Calle Arzobispo Merino and Isabel la Catolica. 
Address: Calle Isabel La Católica, Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
