Historic Park Features the Only Home Where Christopher Columbus Lived in the Americas

The “La Isabela Archaeological Park” is one of the main historical attractions of Puerto Plata, on the country’s north coast.

Dating back to 1493, the historic park features the area where the Spanish settlers founded the first city in the Americas.

Visitors to the park will be able to visit Christopher Columbus’ fortress-home, said to be the only home he built for himself in the Americas.

The historic park also features 15th century dwellings, a church and a cemetery. The Spanish Crown established the first City Hall and the first port of the Americas.

Activities in the Park

The Dominican Ministry of Culture announced that beginning November 2015 it will introduce various cultural activities in the park, with the support of the Spanish Agency for International Development, the Tourism Cluster of Puerto Plata, the Inter-American Development Bank and the Multilateral Investment Fund.
