Saint Dominic also known as Dominic of Osma, Dominic de Guzmán and Domingo de Guzmán Garcés (1170 – August 6, 1221) was the founder of the Friars Preachers, called the Dominicans or Order of Preachers, a Catholic religious order.
Santo Domingo de Guzmán (commonly shortened to Santo Domingo) has around 2.5 Millions of population, and is located on Caribbean Sea and the mouth of the Ozama river. The city was founded by Christopher Columbus in 1496 and it is a first city in the "New World". Dictator Rafael Leónidas Trujillo Molina gave the name to city by itself, so it was called Cuidad Trujillo until 1961.
At the time before Columbus, the island had name Quisqueya (mother of all lands) and Ayiti (land of high mountains), and was governed by a system of Cacicazgos Taino indians (chieftains) consisting of five divisions: Marién, Maguá, Maguana, Jaragua and Higüey.
The most importand building would be Catedral Santa María La Menor, the first Catholic cathedral in America.
