    Distrito Nacional Details

    The major city of the Distrito Nacional is Santo Domingo. Santo Domingo offers everything from baseball to horse racing and from sunbathing to scuba diving. Distrito Nacional, however, can be expensive, especially Santo Domingo. Distrito Nacional can then act as a starting point for your exploration of the rest of the Dominican Republic. In Eastern Lookout Park or Southern Lookout Park, be sure to enter the many caves, including the Three Eyes. In the city proper of Santo Domingo, there are many historical sights including the Altar de Patria erected in honor of the Nations heroes. There is the Fort of Santa Barbara, now in ruins and the magnificent Alcázar de Colón. This structure, built for Columbus, consists of coral limestone. The First Cathedral in America is a worthwhile visit as, too, are Columbus Lighthouse and the Ogama Fortress.
