Santiago de los Caballeros

First Santiago of the Americas

Founded in 1496 by Christopher Columbus' brother, Santiago de los Caballeros was among the very first European settlements in the Americas, which explains its nickname: "First Santiago of the Americas." Today, the city represents one of the Western Hemisphere's major financial, cultural, and industrial centers. For visitors on vacation in Santiago de los Caballeros, the city provides an ideal urban base for exploring the north-central section of the country. While Santiago boasts Spanish-style buildings that appeal to architecture buffs, the surrounding area features large sugar mills, tobacco plantations, and small settlements ideal for visitors interested in seeing how ordinary Dominicans live, work, and play.
