4.0
Head to Plaza de Espana (Plaza de Armas), a common meeting area for locals and home to some of the city’s most important buildings. Surrounded by cafes with outdoor patios, the square is a great place to grab a bite, a drink, or to watch local life go by. The large open square is home to Alcazar de Colon, the oldest Viceregal residents in America. Look for the house of Diego Columbus, son of Christopher Columbus, which sits on the square.

  • Great place to go in the afternoon to take a glass of wine and dine watching the sunset, if you have children you can enjoy to see them play in the square while you enjoy the evening. Different options of restaurants and bars with outdoor tables. Unfortunately some casual singers "strive to" accompany you sometimes...

  • Wide, in a key role in the history of Santo Domingo and America. It is in front of the Alcazar of Colon and then the ladies Street. All the buildings to its around are very beautiful and interesting.
