    This "Pedestrian Only" shopping street is both the center of tourist goods and western designer clothes. It runs from Parque Colon to Parque Independencia. The street name honors the Count of Penalba, who defeated the English during the 17th century.

    Shops along the El Conde Street

    When you walk along the El Conde street, you will find a large variety of shops. There are many locals shopping as well, so I assume it is not only for tourists. We found most of our souvenirs there, but also some other things that we wanted to buy.

    Not that expensive

    It is actually my favorite shop in Santo Domingo. Very well kept and neatly organized.

    What to buy: Local crafts in general, but watch out for well done souvenirs, Taino Gods, pottery and t-shirts.

    What to pay: I paid like 8 dlls. for a Taino God and 5 for a nice box.

    Calle el Conde: Amber and larimar

    by Joan58 Written Feb 5, 2003

    Calle el Conde is a pedestrian street that connects the Colonial Zone with the new part of the city. It begins from Parque Colòn and is full of shops.

    What to buy: Here you can find beautiful jewels made of amber or larimar. The amber of the Dominican Republic is considered the finest amber in the world. The larimar is a semiprecious stone you can find only in the Dominican Republic. I would like...for lack of funds I bought a picture.

    What to pay: Bargain over the price. Always.
