The embassy of France in Santo Domingo is located in the former residence of Hernán Cortés, thus it houses the headquarters of the embassy.

It is a very simple building in comparison to others like the Alcázar or the Royal Houses. It is a two-level construction whose original structure has been respected, while adapting it to the needs of the House of France.

Inside, you’ll be able to watch the archaeological courtyard where it  can be seen the first gold foundry in the city. Besides, the french institution organizes a large number of cultural exhibitions and activities in its rooms. .

During your walk around the classical de Las Damas Street, visit this simple but majestic building and admire the beauty of the designs from Colonial times.
