Dominican Republic

Postcard of Conde Street in the city centre of the capital, Santo Domingo. Part of the Colonial City of Santo Domingo World Heritage site. The street was one of the main streets in Santo Domingo during the colonial era and houses the first city hall and first cathedral built in the Americas. Santo Domingo is actually the oldest permanent European settlement in the New World.

Many thanks and much appreciation to friends Sarah who overcame many obstacles to get me this card. ¡Gracias, guapa!

Stamp commemorating Juan Pablo Duarte y Díez, a Dominican intellectual, poet and writer and one of the founding fathers of the country.
