Historic Walking Area Neighborhood
Hop on Chu Chu Colonial and embark on a journey through the 500 years of history of a Santo Domingo World Heritage Site and the first place Christopher Columbus set foot in 1492. During a 35-minute narrated tour aboard this train, you'll learn about the 16th-century buildings, colonial churches, and cobblestone streets built along the Ozama River which tell the stories of Spanish influence, the history of independence, and common people who once lived there. Do not miss the bronze statue of Christopher Columbus in the central square nor the 16th-century church there. Local shops and restaurants line the European-style pedestrian street Calle El Conde. Audio guides to the different routes are available in five languages: Spanish, English, French, Italian, and Russian.
