An authentic style house built in the 15th century, Casa De Tostado is a historic monument that was one of the earliest constructions in Santo Domingo. The house gives a peek into the typical Dominican lifestyle.


Built in the 15th century, the Casa De Tostado or the House of Tostado is a striking colonial building which was restored into a museum- giving a glimpse of life in the 19th century. The house features model displays of the bedrooms, library, kitchen and living areas with items collected from prominent families across the Dominican Republic to give an authentic touch. The house is renowned for its double window Gothic Elizabethan façade with typical Moorish influences, making it one of the most unique windows in the world. Several fables and stories run around the lavish house which was said to have gone all the way to the see when it was fully constructed. A walk through the house and its courtyard is akin to travelling back in time as the well maintained walls and structures have different stories to tell.
