Welcome to Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Santo Domingo is the capital of the Dominican Republic and founded by Christopher Columbus’ brother on the island of Hispaniola. The stunning walled city is a monument to its fierce and turbulent history, with the first Catholic archbishopric, the oldest military building and the first university in the New World.
The cobblestoned streets are perfect for strolling past medieval fortresses, spectacular museums to the beautiful Caribbean beaches or first-rate restaurants and shops. Ride the train around the magnificent National Botanical Garden and enjoy its indigenous plants and birds.
The New World began in Santo Domingo. Immerse yourself in its vibrant colors, impromptu street dancers, colonial charm and architecture with your professional photographer in Johannesburg.
