Calle de Las Damas, Santo Domingo

(4.1/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
Amble down Calle de Las Damas, a historic thoroughfare said to be the oldest street in the New World. The colonial residences that line the street have been converted into cultural attractions and accommodations, including upscale hotels, museums, and governmental buildings. Translating as "Ladies' Street," the road got its current name when several important noblewomen moved to the city and would walk down the street of an evening. Its architectural highlights and the main plaza have been UNESCO-listed to protect the whole of the downtown colonial area.
