This local historic site is just simply stunning. The architecture, cobblestone streets, the people were beautiful to me. Great for picture taking and people watching. The locals are friendly and welcoming.

Is busy and well kept. On one side you have the Nicolas de Ovando and on the other the fallen. Is good to know how was the history why the name and the different names that had.

Its a nice place to walk either at night or during the day, they have foods and sweets in the way so it is convenient for grabbing something to eat as well!

I really enjoyed the architecture of the area. This the oldest street in the Americas and is surrounded by a couple of days worth of exploring forts, homes, museums and good food.

never reviewed a street before.... but this is the street where my favorite hotel in Santo Domingo is located. With so much history to be found on this street it is somewhere well worth exploring. Stay at the Nicolas de Ovando, walk across the street...More
