One of the most popular museums in the Colonial City. Completed around 1512, this Gothic and Renaissance style palace was the home of Diego Columbus, son of Christopher Columbus, and his wife María de Toledo, niece of King Ferdinand of Spain.
Located on Padre Billini Street, this second convent of the Americas dates back to the 16th century. Once occupied by nuns, this imposing work of architecture is a popular site for wedding ceremonies, no doubt for its beautiful Gothic exterior, yet intimately sized chapel with domed ceilings, Gothic vaults, and air-conditioning. Renowned Dominican poet Salomé Ureña later turned it into an educational institute for women, before the building went back to being a convent.
