It’s the oldest city in the New World, but Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic is constantly reinventing itself.

And that energy extends to the city’s historic Colonial Zone, which will soon see another new wave of renovations.

The Dominican Republic’s Ministry of Tourism has announced a major new master plan to renovate and preserve the touristic route surrounding the colonial city.

Improvements to the Colonial Zone will include the restoration and preservation of the historic wall that runs through the city, connecting it to the city’s main touristic route.

That will help allow visitors to see how the city operated during the colonial era.
