Santiago de los Caballeros, Dominican Republic
The name of Santiago de los Treinta Caballeros is something of a mouthful. Sometimes it's shortened to Santiago de los Caballeros, but most often the city is simply called Santiago. Located in the north-central region of the Dominican Republic, and often compared to Santo Domingo, the Dominican's capital and largest city, Santiago is the second largest city in the country. Like Santo Domingo, it has a long history and was founded during the first wave of Spain's colonisation of the New World. Both Santiago de los Caballeros and Santo Domingo have played a major role in the economic and cultural development of the Dominican Republic. But life is a bit slower, a bit more laid-back in Santiago de los Caballeros than it is in the capital city.
The city doesn't feature many places that are aimed specifically at tourism, but that's one of its charms.
