I think have a PDF at home, if I find it I could send it to your e-mail address if you provide one.


Wait, do you need a map of Dominican Republic or Santo Domingo? Because I have a PDF map of DR right here.

Travel Tips for Santo Domingo

LA ZONA COLONIAL

by Joan58

In Santo Domingo the historical center, La Zona Colonial, is a well preserved place and is considered Human Heritage by UNESCO. Here there are about 300 historical buildings, among which the first cathedral built in the New World and the first street, Calle de Las Damas. Some streets of the Colonial Zone are closed to traffic. Walking down Calle de Las Damas you can feel the atmosphere of the old days. I could imagine to meet a Spanish nobleman and his lady coming out from a main door.

The First Church in the Americas

by Patricialuv

"La Catedral Primada de America" as it is called in Spanish, was built in the early 16th century. This is where the first mass in the New World was made.

It is in very good shape and it's very beautiful on the inside as well.

Politics in the Caribbean

by mikey_e

If you're interested in the politics that shape modern Dominican Republic, you might be interested in taking a trip to see one of the political party headquarters. There's one such house on Ave. Independencia just across from the entrance of the parking lot for Meliá SD. The parties really like to show up their founders and display party colours, so they can be quite a sight and the murals on the buldings are educational as well.

El Obelisco/Obelisco Macho

by mikey_e

The Male Obelisk or Obelisco Macho is, despite its innocous appearance, a massive tribute to dictatorship and oppresion. It was built in 1936 by Trujillo in order to commemorate the rechristining of his namesake quarter of the city, Ciudad Trujillo (which has since been renamed). Today it has a mural of the Mirabal sister, opponents of the regime who were murdered on Trujillo's orders. Despite the overt political nature of the Obelisco, there are few memorial plaques or explanations (I learned about it in the guide book) and it marks more of a mundane division between the part of the Malecón reserved from hotels and casinos (west of it) and that area in which you will find small restaurants and nightclubs catering to locals (to the east). It's right near Osvaldo Baez and the Malecón.
