Plaza De Espana is a historic plaza that runs in front of Don Diego Columbus's former residence, as well as numerous shops and restaurants. The plaza is bordered by what were once the ramparts that walled the city in.


Located in Zona Colonial, Plaza De Espana welcomes residents and tourists lodging in this neighborhood. Regardless of whether or not you are staying nearby, you should consider dropping by to enjoy a great time.

If you walked up Isabel la Catolica from the Condle for three blocks and make a right you will be in the plaza.

Nearby Restaurants

And, one of the most exciting possibilities while spending some time exploring the area is enjoying a dish at a restaurant within traveling distance of the outdoor park. Costelao La Churrasqueria is a great eatery to fill up at before spending time at the park, and will be of particular interest to visitors looking for a convenient meal. The restaurant is just around less than a hundred yards from the outdoor park, so stop in and place your order. Museo Del Jamon and Pate Palo offer additional restaurant choices nearby. At Pate Palo you and your companions should be sure to try out International dishes and enjoy the local foods and culture of the Dominican Republic.
