  • Behind its facilities Sundays are the best afternoons. Live music and dance Gets a spectacular time, if dance tropical genres you'll love if you don't dance them you will want to learn, you could go every week.

  • I was here to explore the small ruins and take a few pictures. I recommend you make pictures at sunset, before sunlight is lost. Excellent!

  • The Hospital San Nicolás de Bari was the first hospital in America. It was built in 1503 in Santo Domingo de Guzman, capital of Hispaniola, current Dominican Republic. It was founded by Nicolás de Ovando, who was then Governor of the island. Along with the Cathedral of Santa Maria the younger, founded in 1512 and the Autonomous University of Santo Domingo (founded in 1538) is one of the three first fruits of the new world in the island of Santo Domingo, which has made the Dominican Colonial zone has been declared World Heritage site by UNESCO. In principle consisted of three ships, of which the first and the last they were dedicated to the care of the sick and the central was a chapel. Already to 1552, the Governor ended the construction, however, the recurrent hurricanes and quakes typical of the island swept with the construction, of which today only ruins remain, visited by tourists.
