All reviews people watch christopher columbus beautiful square musicians playing shoe shine el conde starting point locals and tourists buy souvenirs historic area the main square oldest cathedral take photos old city walking tour dominican republic pigeons
This is an interesting hangout with all kinds of artists, performers, a cigar store, a few restaurants, and historic buildings all around. It was one of my favorite things about my visit to the Dominican Republic, and it is free.
The most important park in Santo Domingo. Statue of Christopher Columbus and Catedral. Lot of people hanging here, musicians, restaurants. Old ficus trees make shadow, so it is nice to take a break and start peoplewatching...
You sit there and watch all the happenings around. The restaurants/cafes, the people, the cathedral and the birds. You can watch here bands of musicians playing and singing Spanish songs for some pennies they expect. I myself took the service of a shoe shiner...Great atmosphere.
Thank Rami A
