5 Reviews

In a diverse city with streets that vary from colonial cobblestone to well-worn dirt paths, the bustling square of Columbus Park proves iconic, with an energy that unifies old world Santo Domingo with contemporary Dominican Republic.

Once known as Plaza Mayor, the square was renamed after its towering sculpture of Christopher Columbus in the late 1800s. The historic park is a popular gathering place for travelers looking to people watch and locals looking for a bit of relaxation come mid-afternoon. Columbus Park’s close proximity to landmarks like the Catedral de Santa Maria la Menor, the Municipal Palace and the old commercial district known as Calle del Conde, make it the perfect place to kick off a day in the city’s old Colonial Zone.

Afro-Dominican history

Afro-Dominican history

The history of the colonial era is told mostly from a Spanish Latino perspective, dissociating the importance and significant contributions of black-Afro-descendant culture to the Dominican Republic, almost leaving an empty bias on the resistance of the African diasporas on the island. I intend to provide a historical look at what happened during the period of slavery in addition to the current view of the Dominican and its identity or not corresponding to the Afro heritage.
