Colonial City of Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

Colonial City of Santo Domingo, declared a UNESCO World Heritage site in 1990

 

After the arrival of Christopher Columbus to the island of the Dominican Republic in 1492, the first cathedral, hospital, customs house and university in the American continents, were built in the city of Santo Domingo. This colonial city was laid out on a grid pattern that was the model for the new urban developments in the New World.

 

Kalam’s team is working on the Cathedral of Santa María de la Encarnación or Primada de América, restoring its exterior, facades and roofs, performing cleaning tasks, recovering the lost mortar, consolidating the walls and waterproofing the roof. This cathedral is the only one in the Americas built in the Gothic style and it holds the title of Metropolitan and Primate of the Indies, granted by Pope Paul III in 1546.
