Santo Domingo is a collage of cultures and neighborhoods. It's where in actuality the seems of life, domino parts smacked on platforms, backfiring mufflers and horns from disorderly traffic. In one's heart of the town may be the Zona Colonial, where you will find one of many oldest churches and the oldest remaining European.
