They invest 116 million pesos in renovating museums in Ciudad Colonial

Some 14 infrastructures, including monuments and churches, located throughout the Colonial City, will be intervened from this Thursday with rehabilitation, beautification and renovation works.

The Ministry of Tourism, headed by David Collado, started the work that includes operations in the Alcázar de Colón and the Puerta de La Misericordia, among which an investment is estimated more than 116 million pesos.

“It is a historical fact for tourism, for the Colonial City, for its culture, for its art, for the history of this First City of America,” Collado argued during a tour of several of the points to be renovated.

Likewise, the minister indicated that these tasks are part of the project of his management that seeks to reinforce the “vision of caring, protecting and beautifying the historical heritage that is the Colonial City.”


Among the works included in the investment are the Church of Las Mercedes, Regina Angelorum, Church and Convent of the Dominicans, Church of San Lázaro and the parish of San Miguel, in addition to seven other churches, in an effort to strengthen religious tourism.

“What we are looking for is to put aside that idea that the Dominican Republic is only a sun and beach tourism, we have historical riches like these that are here in Ciudad Colonial and that today we are beginning to appreciate in value”, he claimed, also adding that the country is the owner of gastronomic and religious tourism, because “the Dominican Republic has it all”.
