Next to the house of the Governor Nicolás de Ovando, you’ll find the residence of the Dávila family, one of the most finished houses from Colonial times.

The building has wonderful views to the Ozama river, and it is located in the place where the most relevant residences of the time used to be.

Its interior has a chapel, known as The Remedios Chapel and a small fort known as Fortín Invencible, which was part of the city’s line of defense.

The site was given as a welcoming present from the governor Nicolás de Ovando to the Dávila family, owners of many lands and one of the most influential families in the island. On its simple facade, Dávila family's coat of arms it can be seen.

Francisco Dávila was the Councilor of the city and, later on, Judge of the Real Audiencia.

Currently, the House is part (as well as the residence of Nicolás de Ovando) of the Nicolás de Ovando Hostel.
