The city of Santo Domingo has the oldest colonial zone of the New World, located next to the mouth of the Ozama River. It was founded in 1498 and was the first colonial city to which the Spanish Crown granted a royal charter. Strolling through its narrow and old but well preserved cobbled streets is a real pleasure. There are intact buildings from the colonial era. It has a variety of entertainment sites and exquisite restaurants. For more information visit: http://www.turismosantodomingo.com/zona-colonial.html.
