Photographer's Note

The oldest existing settlement founded by Europeans in the western hemisphere, Santo Domingo, the capital and largest city of the Dominican Republic, boasts many historical attractions. The Cathedral of Santa Maria la Menor, constructed during the early 1500s, is the oldest church in the West Indies. Some historians believe that the remains of famed navigator Christopher Columbus rest in the cathedral.
