Calle Las Damas
Calle Las Damas was the first street in Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic and America.

The house of Don Rodrigo de Bastidas (today the "Trampolín" children's museum), colonial houses (some with colonial shields) and at the end Plaza España.

Calle Las Damas, was the first street created in the Colonial Zone, which was made during the government of Nicolás de Ovando, in this street it went from the Ozama Fortress or Torre del Homenaje, to the vicinity of the Alcázar, which were started around 1511.

During colonial times, this street was called Calle de la Fortaleza, because the Ozama Fortress was located on it.

Parque Colon
Parque Colón is one of the parks or historical squares of the Colonial City of Santo Domingo, which served as the main party center of the society of the colonial era.

Currently, Parque Colón is used as the main center for cultural activities and is also part of the World Heritage Site of Santo Domingo.

This was the main entertainment center for the inhabitants of the time, since it gave life and splendor to the town of La Isabela and its surroundings.

The name of Plaza Mayor was given in honor of the Commander of the order of Nicolás de Ovando, who arrived in Santo Domingo in 1502. His name was even more due, since he was in charge of moving the city to the western part of the Ozama River.

We will also do our tour in this beautiful place and we will see hundreds of doves that adorn this area.

Panteon Nacional
The building was one of the last buildings built by the Spanish on Dominican soil. The date of the beginning of its construction is not known with certainty, but some historians suppose that it was between the years 1714 and 1755 and it is attributed to Jerónimo Quezada y Garçon. It originally served as a church for the Jesuit order. Here the Jesuit priests gave mass with their backs to the congregation so that everyone, including the priests, would face the figure of Jesus Christ and the altar. The National Pantheon has about 36 empty spaces to house future heroes. There is also an empty space without a plaque, dedicated to the unknown soldier. There is a permanent Honor Guard, made up of members of the presidential guard, dressed in gala clothes, without moving a single muscle. One of them makes a solemn round walk in the central aisle, which goes from the main entrance to just in front of the main altar.
