Calle del Conde street Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover Calle del Conde street

A meeting point for inhabitants and tourists within the colonial zone, Calle de Conde street holds an incredible concentration of bars, restaurants, takeaways and all sorts of shops, all the way from Puerta del Conde to Parque Colon and its cathedral. Santo Domingo's only pedestrian street, this never-ending shopping area bustles with life and is ideally located at the heart of the city. Shops line the cobbled streets, some of them selling original knick knacks from all over the world. As you explore the colonial zone, you will inevitably cross this street several times. It was named after the Conde de Penalva (Count of Penalva), governor of Hispaniola, who defended the city against English attacks in 1655. On one end of the pedestrian street El Conde, a 17th century gate stands as a token of the old colonial rampart and marks mile '0' the Dominican Republic's. This impressive fortified gate guards Independence Park, where Altar de la Patria stands, the mausoleum where the country's founders lie in rest: Duarte, Sanchez and Mella. An eternal flame commemorates the nation's three founding fathers. On February 27, 1844, independence was declared there, initiating the rise of the Dominican Republic.
