Just a short walk from the Alcazar de Colon are the dockyards, or Las Atarazanas. In the 16th century this set of buildings was the New World's first commercial industry. The stone buildings were linked together by inner courtyards. During their bloom they were the epitome of colonial architecture. Today, the buildings are still used for commercial purposes, they have been transformed into art galleries, boutiques, bars, and restaurants.
