President Luis Abinader recently made a supervisory tour of the renovation and rescue work being carried out by the Ministries of Tourism and Culture, the Mayor’s Office and the tourism cluster in the Colonial City.
During his visit, Abinader highlighted the great historical and cultural attractions of the area. “The Colonial City has too much to offer to the Dominican population and the tourist,” said the president, who also shared with restaurant owners of that place.
“We came here to see all the work that is being done, to support the Mayor’s Office of the National District, the Ministries of Tourism and Culture, as well as the Colonial City Cluster, the guides and the tours, because here we are all together to develop tourism in the Dominican Republic,” he assured.
The President guaranteed that the colonial infrastructures will be improved every day, but said that from now on the Dominican and foreign population can enjoy its attractions as a family. He asked Dominicans to visit the old city, where there are various attractions, both during the day and at night.
“Here there is culture, culinary wealth, museums… They should come to the colonial zone, they should know all the history, because to know the history of the Colonial City is to know the history of the island, both the colonial and republican stages,” he said.
The head of state toured the streets of the Colonial Zone on foot, accompanied by the ministers of Tourism, David Collado, and Culture, Carmen Heredia; the mayor, Carolina Mejía and Mónica Infante, of the Tourism Cluster, who announced that during the weekends of September, all visitors will be able to enjoy various routes to learn about the history that surrounds its streets.
