This is a must visit in Santo Domingo, first church in Latin América, besides the fact that is beautiful, the architecture, the site, the view.

don't miss it.

Over the years beautifully maintained and worth a visit (ask for a tour for more info)
On sunday's at 12 noon, there is a mass. (other hours i don't know)
Nice combination with a lunch in the zone colonial (suggestion PatePalo or LuLu but there are lots of other places to go to ofcourse)

Of course, no one can deny the value of this old building but there's little to see inside. The most interesting feature are some walls made of coral stones.

Impressive and seemingly well preserved on the inside. The pre-recorded audioguide will bombard you with factual information on who each of the 12 chapels was built for (a clergyman, a saint) and at what year. Beautiful, but I wished the information had been more interesting and relatable.

Beautiful historical sight in Santo Domingo - - must see. You can walk through the cathedral on your own listening to a recorded tour. Note to ladies - if you are wearing shorts, they will provide you with a wrap to use as a skirt and cover your legs.
