The old Colonial buildings in Santo Domingo are various, but none is as impressive as The Tower of Homage, which is located at the very center of what used to be a military compound. The tower was built in 1503 and it is the oldest military tower constructed in the New World. For the most part, the tower served as a prison. Today it is simply a tourist attraction and a reminder of the way things once were.
