Right in the heart of the fertile land of the Cibao and surrounded by the beautiful Yaque del Norte River, is the province of Santiago de los Caballeros. Its main city, which shares the same name, is the second most important city in the country. The province occupies an area of 2,389 km2 and has a population of 710,803.

Of fruitful soil, Santiago bases its agricultural wealth on the agro-industry and it is known internationally for its plantation, harvest and commercialization of tobacco. It also produces top quality rum and liqueur. Among other agro-industrial activities in the region, there are cacao, rice, coffee, plantain, bananas and other fruits.
In addition, the raising of bovine and porcine cattle stands out. One of the most dynamic activities in this province’s economy is the Industrial Free Zone, providing revenue to the country and a source of employment to its residents.

As a booming industrial zone, it includes factories of soft drinks, woven fabrics, pasta, preserves, leather, candies, cheese, pasteurized milk, and toys.
In craftsmanship, the area has several production centers of fine crafts. In education, it is the home of reputable universities. In addition, it offers higher education through the extension schools that the main universities of the country have in the region. In the cultural area, numerous venues serve as the stage for artistic expressions, the greatest of them being the Cibao Theater, the most modern building of this sort.

Santiago de los Caballeros, among other cities in the country, is characterized by its traditions and the pride of its people, due to the fact that it was the seat of government and capital of the country in several historical moments.

One of the attractions the city has to offer is a horse-drawn carriage ride around the monuments to the Heroes of the Restoration, the Santiago Apóstol Cathedral and the Plaza of Culture.
