Santo Domingo
El Obelisco Macho

La Avenida George Washington

La Fortaleza Ozama
This is the oldest military fortress in the Americas. The Keep, inside the fortress, was built in 1503.
La Catedral Primada
The First Cathedral was built between 1514 and 1544 and is one of the best examples of Renaissance architecture.
El Faro a Colón
This Columbus Lighthouse was built in honor of the famous explorer. It measures almost 210 meters tall and also serves as a cultural center. It is very large in comparison to many Michigan lighthouses, as well as being a different shape(a cross).
El Alcázar de Colón
The Palace of Columbus is the most impressive structure in the old town. It was built by Digo Columbus, brother of Christopher Columbus.
El Locrio Dominicano
The Dominican Locrian is a stew whose main ingredients are rice and beef, chicken, or fish.
Habichuelas con dulce
Sweet beans is a dessert prepared with beans. In comparison, the United States has no kind of dessert eaten with beans, as they are generally considered a main course food.
En Santo Domingo
In Santo Domingo, one eats well inside and outside the house. Dominican restaurants offer typical Dominican and International food. Similarly, American restaurants often blend dishes from other countries with their own food ideas.
Palmira (1978)
Palmira was painted by Ada Balcacer. The works of this Dominican artist can be seen in the Museum of Modern Art in Santo Domingo.
El Museo del Hombre Dominicano
The indigenous groups of the Dominican Republic left traces of their culture in their artworks, many of which can be seen in the Museum of the Dominican Man.
Plaza de la Cultura

Playa Boca Chica
Literally translated to Girl Mouth Beach, this is one of the most beautiful beaches in Santo Domingo where people can relax and enjoy the Caribbean Seas. In comparison, the United States has several beautiful beaches as well. Though they may differ in size, beaches like Grand Haven in Michigan or Siesta Key Beach in Florida.
Los Tres Ojos
In this park, there are three lakes under ground level with crystal clear water: The Three Eyes. This park has a similar draw to tourists as Yellowstone Park here in the U.S., though for different attractions.
Cristóbal Colón
This explorer arrived on the island of Quisqueya on December 5, 1492. It was called Hispaniola. Today the island is divided into two countries: Haiti and the Dominican Republic.
This indigenous leader fought against the Europeans in the fifteenth century. Enriquillo's statue is in the Plaza of Culture in Santo Domingo.
Juan Pablo Duarte
Juan Duarte was the founder of the independence group The Trinity. They fought for the liberation of the Dominican Republic, inspired by Haitian influence.
