Santo Domingo’s Old Town, or Zona Colonal, is a treasure trove of historic, sometimes crumbling buildings. Undergoing a restoration, Zona Colonial is partially enclosed by remnants of its original city wall. The cobblestone streets, old stone buildings, and forts are like nothing else in the Caribbean, except perhaps Old San Juan. Stroll the narrow streets in the footsteps of Columbus, Ponce de León and Cortés.
