Las casas coloniales
The colonial zone in Santo Domingo was laid out on a grid pattern, which would become the model for other cities in the New World. Most of the landmarks in the colonial zone were built between the 16th and 19th centuries. This area is lined with cobblestone streets and building that include palaces, schools, and houses. The heart of this zone is Parque Colón, which has a large statue of Christopher Columbus.
