Visit Santiago de los Caballeros
The second largest city on the island, with a population of almost a million people. It is located in the middle of the country, surrounded by the most fertile soils of the Caribbean and by abounding natural resources. Founded as the city of "Los Trenta Caballerous" it was originally build on the banks of Rio Yaque Del Norte at a place called Jacagus in 1494 where Columbus ordered a fort to be built.
The rum distilleries attract their share of tourist, all distilleries offer tours and one of the highlights of their tours is the tasting of different kinds of rum. Santiago is also the birthplace of the Merengue, which evolved in the Dominican countryside years ago, now is one of the most popular Latin styles dancing. The narrow streets of the city offer tourists a look into the past. With almost every street having least one Colonial building on it and some of the even older buildings being of Victorian decent, with their gingerbread style is a historical charm.
