The Alcazar of Columbus, the National Pantheon, the first Cathedral in the Americas... discover the colonial heritage of the Dominican capital on this half-day tour of Santo Domingo.
Santo Domingo Half-Day Tour
After meeting at the Hotel Grand Bahía Príncipe in La Romana, you'll set off towards the west in the direction of the capital of the Dominican Republic: Santo Domingo. After a little over an hour's drive, you'll arrive ready to begin your guided tour.
Delve straight into the historic centre of the city, which was the first to be founded by European settlers in the Americas. You'll discover the most important church in the city and the first cathedral in the Americas: the Catedral Primada de América. Its impressive façade will leave you speechless!
The next stop on your half-day tour of Santo Domingo will be the National Pantheon. Formerly a Jesuit church, the building is now a mausoleum housing the remains of some of the most important historical figures of the Dominican Republic.
It wouldn't be a trip to Santo Domingo without a visit to the Alcázar de Colón! This mansion, located in the Plaza de España, was the former residence of Diego Colón, otherwise known as the son of Christopher Columbus.
At the end of your tour, you'll head back to La Romana.
