Ciudad Colonial (Zona Colonial) Tours

Ciudad Colonial (Zona Colonial)
The Caribbean is known for its brilliant colors and vibrant culture. Travelers to Dominican Republic will find this to be especially true amid the lively streets of Santo Domingo, where the country’s urban center is ripe with the smells and sounds of Latin America.

But visitors who venture to Ciudad Colonial (Zona Colonial)—one of the city’s most historic neighborhoods—will find a tiny enclave filled with traditional European-style architecture, well-kept parks, cobblestone streets and artistic nods to great adventurers.

A mighty bronze statue of Christopher Columbus sits at the center of Parque Colon, and nearby Calle Las Damas is the oldest paved road in the New World. These historic sites, paired with incredible architecture unlike anywhere in Santo Domingo, are just part of what make Zona Colonial a popular destination for travelers looking to escape the hustle of the city, as well as those who want to experience the nation’s capital as it used to be.

Practical Info

Zona Colonial is approximately five square kilometers located on the western side of the Ozama River. It includes several important buildings including the Catedral Primada de America and Alcazar de Colon. 
Address: Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic
