"San José Fort" Zona Colonial - Old Town Tip by mikey_e
Zona Colonial - Old Town, Santo Domingo: 22 reviews and 52 photos
The San José Fort was constructed in the 17th century after the English, led by Drake, invaded Santo Domingo. The English were obviously expelled, but the Spanish administration felt that it needed greater protection for the city's coastline and thus ordered the construction of the Fort. It now consists primarily of about 100 metres of the city walls. There isn't much to see of it, but it is still interesting to take pictures of and is and the way from the Fray Montesinos Monument to the Cathedral. Alternatively, if you walk west along the Malecón into the city, its a good end point for your seafront tour.
Address: Malecón at 19 de Marzo
Directions: On the south edge of the Zona Colonial
