Catedral Primada de América
This impressive basilica, located on the south side of Parque Colón, was completed in 1540 and was the first cathedral built in America. Today, is not a ruin but a functional place of worship that retains many of the original features of the 16th century.
Built in 1502, the fort served the military interests of Spain, England, France, Haiti, Grand Columbia, the U.S. and, of course, the Dominican Republic until it was decommissioned and reopened for public use in 1970.
After submerged in the rich history of this landmark, climb to the top of the Coral rock of Torre del Homenaje (or homer's Tower), located in the center.
Stunning sandy beaches stretching for miles and bright blue waters are within a short drive from the city. These beaches are located in the nearby towns of Boca Chica (30 minutes by car) and Juan Dolio (45 minutes). The beach areas are close enough for a fun and easy daily trip.
