"Alley and Plaza of the Priests" Zona Colonial - Old Town Tip by mikey_e
Zona Colonial - Old Town, Santo Domingo: 22 reviews and 52 photos
The Plaza of the Priests, which is just behind the Catedral de Santa María de la Encarnación, is a delightfully peaceful plaza set off from the hustle and noise of the Parque de Colón. It was once a cemetary, but was disrupted during the English occupation and the reign of Drake. Today it is no longer a place of the dead and you can wander freely and take as many photographs as you like. If you enter from the south side (Padre Billini) you will have to pass through the Alley of the Priests - so named since it leads from the Cathedral to the priests' quarters. It really is a beautiful and peaceful walkway, with Islamic arches and bougainevillea growings along the sides.
Address: Plazoleta de los Curas
Directions: Behind the Catedral; entrance from Padre Billini too
