The Puerta del Conde in Santo Domingo is located in the huge, quiet plaza – the Parque Independencia.
You can walk here from Parque Colon in Zonia Colonial by taking Calle el Conde. This Call is a long street full of shops and cafes. I recommend it as a stop on a day of exploring the Zonia Colonial on foot.
In this photo you see the gate with the busy Calle el Conde in the distance. It’s a pedestrian street full of shops and people walking up and down it. If you turn around you see the Altar de la Patria, a mausoleum for the remains of the republic’s founding fathers.
