Trip Planner: Caribbean / Dominican Republic / Santo Domingo Province / Santo Domingo / Catedral Primada de America
Gaze upon the beautiful golden coral-limestone facade, and immerse yourself in the rich history of Catedral Primada de America, the first cathedral to be built in the Americas. Take an audio guide on entry, available at a small extra charge, and admire the magnificent architecture of the 500-year-old structure, with its cross-vaulted ceilings and impressive scale. Be aware that the cathedral still functions as a place of worship, so any clothing deemed too revealing is forbidden.

Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Catedral Primada de America by using our Santo Domingo attractions planning website.
