Santiago is a province of the Dominican Republic. Santiago is the heart of the country. It is an intellectual, educational, and cultural center. It is also a major industrial center with the rum, textile, cigarette and cigar industry, which are based there. Shoe manufacturing and leather goods furniture making are an important part of the city's economic life. It is also a major Free Zone center with four important industrial free zones, and an important cement factory. Santiago is home to one of the largest medical centers in the northern region of the country, Hospital Metropilitano De Santiago, which serves all 13 provinces of the Cibao. Also within striking distance there are a good number of pleasant towns, many of which are quite prosperous. Santiago is in the center of the Cibao Valley, the wealthiest region in the DR per capita. Santiago has a sizable wealthy community composed mainly of "old money." It is surrounded by tall mountains which have for years protected it from hurricanes and allows for dense tropical forests to develop on the slopes of such mountains, which are among the highest in the region
