The very first and oldest headquarter of the Spanish crown in the "New World"! King Ferdinand II of Aragón himself commissioned its construction in 1511. Later on, the Spanish authorities interconnected the buildings housing the offices of the General Governor, the Royal Court and the Captain General, creating the actual awesome palace. After many restorations along the centuries, this impressive building houses, since 1973, the "Museo de las Casas Reales", which honors the history of the colonial Santo Domingo. As a curiosity, the museum also exhibits a collection of weapons that once belonged to the late country's dictator Rafael Leónidas Trujillo Molina. However, the building is much more interesting than the collections themselves. Enjoy!

Exposition was all over the place, Colonialism, independence, Truhillo etc. nothing was explained properly and the guide was always mentioning how poor he is, looking for some dollars.

This place is huge. I loved the garden (although the upkeep could use some work). Overall a good place to blow off an hour or two in a cool shaded breezy palace.

This is supposed to be Santo Domingo's best museum yet it falls short of what you expect of a city that prides itself on being the first European settlement in America..Pickings are slim and the objects on display make you beg for more.A few period manuscripts ( good luck navigating them) justify the 100 pesos entrance fee.Go early because they close at 5pm.

My first day in Santo Domingo I walked from my lovely Boutique Hotel Palacios (1 street) over to Plaza Colón and there I met Mr Peralta, a professional tour guide with more than 20 years of experience, a very enthusiastic and dedicated man. I visited more than 10 historical places each day, two days and this was one of them! We walked around it and took pictures of the other side of the city, the pier, the sun clock right in front and loved it!
