The Zona Colonial, or Cuidad Colonial, is the oldest European settlement in the American continent., It was established by Bartholomew Columbus, the brother of Christopher Columbus, and originally sat on the East bank of the Ozama River. Moving to the west after a hurricane in 1502 this settlement was used as the hub of the Spaniards to extend their influence. Now a UNESCO World Heritage Site is comprised of an impressive array of over 300 historical structures like the Catedral Primada de America and Alcazar de Colon. Many of the original structures from 1502 can still be seen today, including the first ever paved road in the Americas, the Calle las Damas.
