Full description
Spend the day exploring Santo Domingo, the first Spanish colony in the Americas, on a guided tour. Visit places such as Parque Colón, the National Palace and the Alcázar de Colón to discover the wealth of monuments and historic buildings in the city, the Parque de los 3 Ojos and the Faro de Colón. Its tour begins in Los Tres Ojos Park, its formation begins in an underground cave with three natural lakes, it is a natural phenomenon rarely seen. This magnificent natural process has been carried out for thousands of years. Apart from the presence of the three lakes with their crystal clear waters, here there is a rich fauna in which we can find a great variety of fish, bats and the largest ferns on the island that measure up to four meters in height. Enjoy a fascinating typical lunch with an explosion of flavors in one of the oldest sites in the colonial city. Then visit the Alcázar de Colón in the 15th century Colonial Zone. Once home to Diego Columbus, the eldest son of Christopher Columbus and the Spanish viceroy who ruled the island, the palace now houses a museum filled with furniture, artwork, and artifacts from the city's early years. From there, take a stroll down Calle Las Damas, one of the oldest streets in the Western Hemisphere and the first in the city of Santo Domingo. Pass the National Pantheon, the central Parque Colón, and the first Catholic cathedral in the Americas before heading to the Columbus Lighthouse, where the activity culminates. An extraordinary day of history and culture, discovering Santo Domingo, the first city in America.
