Calle de Las Damas, Santo Domingo

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.

  • It is the soul of the old town! You don't get tired to spend and are ironing so this street is beautiful, calm and quiet. The charm is and feels quite easily transported centuries back... One of my favorite places and maybe even the place!

  • We went as part of the excursion to the zona colonial. It is a walk forced along this street. Is full of history and important buildings. Our guide Leo was telling us stories as we advanced.
