Santo Domingo North Walls

There was a time when all of Santo Domingo fit inside a set of walls. However, those days are long gone, and now only ruins of the walls remain, such as these in the north of the Colonial District.


The walls are open to the public, and it is to uncommon to see a tourist taking pictures from the top. The walls also give a good idea of how much the city, and the nation, have grown since the original colonization by the Spanish.
