It is a very nice place, worth visiting if you have some spare time. Very very nice and helpful staff that managed to tell their independence story despite of the language barrier.

The discoverer of the New World Christopher Columbus is honored with this fabulous statue. His Spanish name is Cristobal Colón. The Statue is right in front of the cathedral and at the end of Paseo de Duarte.

This is a great area to relax, have a meal, and plan the rest of the day. The Colon statute is nice, as well as, all of the other historical monuments in the area. It's a perfect place to visit on a warm sunny day.
