Once you step into the square, you can head north, where you’ll find the de La Atarazana Street. There, you’ll also find the Royal Dockyards, a collection of buildings erected between the 15th and 16th centuries in order to be used as storages. Nowadays, despite preserving its exterior structure, they have been transformed into restaurants, discos, art galleries, etc.

The Plaza españa is surrounded by bars and restaurants that place their terraces on the square at twilight and where you’ll be able to enjoy the “typical Dominican party”.

Don’t miss this monumental square and contemplate the Colonial style of the area.
