The Nigua Sugar Mill, Boca de Nigua, is located 13 km to the west of Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, in Santo Domingo Province. Founded by Marquee De Aranda, but later owned by Juan Bautista Ollarazaba, the site was once an important production facility in the regional sugar industry. It exhibits a mill and boiling room, as well as some historic Spanish colonial architecture. The site is being considered to be put on the World Heritage list of sites who have "outstanding universal value" to the world.[1]
