History of discovery

A full colonial area in the Calle de las Damas. It was created by King Ferdinand of Aragon, in October 1511, and was the residence of the Governors General. It has also been home to the School of Fine Arts, and some government agencies. In 1976, it was declared the Royal House Museum when King Juan Carlos I of Spain visited the Dominican Republic. Today, it is home to a permanent exhibition, which explains the history of Spanish discovery and colonization. On the first floor there are different rooms, with various themes: a history of discovery, inventions that made navigation possible, piracy, and a reproduction of a nineteenth century apothecary.
