Coral Stone LMT

The Stone which Started a Continent

Alcázar de Colón

In the Island of La Hispaniola, Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic has the priviledge of being the first City in the Americas. Officially the city was founded on August 5 1496, only four years after Christopher Columbus first came to the “New World”.

On the shores of the Ozama River several building where erected, such as the “Alcazar de Colon”, the “Fortaleza Ozama”, The First Cathedral in the New World, a Dominican Friars’ Convent, among others. What do all of these projects have in common? They all use Coral Stone as their building stone. Geographically, Santo Domingo is situated on a bed of Fossilized Coral Rock so it was easy for builders during construction, to quarry Coral Stone boulders from nearby quarries. Since Fossilized Coral Rock is a very young rock, geologic speaking, it was also a very abundant ingredient for the pozzolanic cement.

Coral Stone was use not only as boulders for the construction, also in common use areas such as sidewalks made by laying Coral Stone Pavers. Although one might think that landscaping was not an issue back then that would be wrong. All house constructed during that period had an interior patio which normally where normally made as Coral Stone Landscape Tiles. Also other architectural elements where made of this stone, just to mention a few, Coral Stone Columns, Balustrade, Coral Stone Trims, Coral Stone Fountains, etc.
