Touring Zona Colonial

Hi Everybody,

I’m investing my day going through the colonial zone of Santo Domingo. As it is the very first city settled through the Spanards, it’s most of the firsts in the usa, namely The very first Chapel, the very first Hospital , the very first Monastery and also the First Street. a brief history goes completely to 1502.

Following a scrumptious breakfast buffet, I began my tour by going to Primary Cathedral of the usa, the foremost and Earliest Catholic Chapel within the Americas. It had been Built between 1521-1540, the stone works look quite interesting because it mixes variations. Next I visited the previous residence of Diego Columbus, boy of Christopher Columbus. Museo Alcazar p Colon has numerous pieces of furniture bobs belonged towards the Columbus Family. I Quickly embarked into the field of Amber Museum in which a great assortment of Amber all over the world were displayed

. It’s very interesting that i can discover that Dominican Republic ‘s north coast Puerto Plata is among world’s leading producer of quality Amber. You will find plenty of beautiful Amber displayed here with bugs as well as other bugs trapped inside. I wondered off to another stop Bay Area Monastery. It was initially built-in 1504 but destroyed multiple occasions by intruders and severe weather, it’s now left like a dramatic ruin around the hill.

When I was walking toward the very first Hospital from the ” new world “, the heavy thunder storm folded in, We had to wait under some awning for any good 40 minutes before the severe thunder storm passes. The earliest hospital, San Nicolas p Bari was here from 1503 til 1911 a effective hurricane managed to get a menace to people on the streets, a lot of it had been knocked lower except a couple of walls waiting in its former glorious past. Then i embarked in to the Museum from the Royal houses, a very long time chair from the The spanish language Regulating building from the entire Caribbean region. Inside you will find plenty of impressive items from various periods dating into the 16th century. Great shows !!! I walked round the area searching for helpful information in the morning, but he’s nowhere found, and so i walked in to the Cacao Museum. This is really probably the most interesting museum I seen. The shop clerk demonstrated me the way the cacao beans were gathered in the pod, dried while wrapped and fermented in blueberry leaves

. the beans will be grounded up right into a pulp along with the machine broken into cacao butter (yellow color) and cacao powder brown. The 3 types of naughty food ended up being made, Dark : 50% cacao powder, relaxation butter and chemicals, milk: thirty percent Cacao powder 30% cacao butter 30% chemicals, and whitened : 50% cacao butter , 50% chemicals. How interesting… Now I finally determined the chocolates % cacao originate from, more pure cacao powder and fewer cacao butter, thus less body fat ?!?!

I came back to my hotel a required a brief break and went of my hotel for additional tours. I met Eduardo, a nearby tour guide who decided to take me round the relaxation from the city. We visited a jewellery shop, Chinatown, presidential structure and Malecon. Eduardo then required me towards the fruit market and Mercado Modelo. I discovered some exotic Mangos !! Only then do we visited the Malecon or Sea from Drive where all of the large Chain hotels ialong using their casinos are situated. Eduardo required me to some sea food Restaurant for many cerviche ( a little too salty) before we mind to your accommodation.
