Explore the first city of the New World and the modern and largest metropolis of the Caribbean
In 1496, the first Europeans settled the capital of the Dominican Republic, although it is officially said that Christopher Columbus’ brother founded it in 1498. Thus, Santo Domingo is the oldest city built by Europeans in the New World. In 1990, UNESCO designated the historic old town on the western bank of the Rio Ozama a World Heritage Site.
During the city tour you will see sights such as the Columbus House, the Faro de Colon or the oldest stone street in the “New World” – Calle de las Damas. Afterwards you will see the first cathedral built on American soil.
In the old town you will have enough time for shopping and walking and lunch (included).
The program also includes a visit to the Cave of the Three Eyes, a stalactite cave, open to the top with crystal clear blue lagoons. A great insight into the “underworld” of Santo Domingo.
