The Dominican city of Santa Cruz de Maoor Mao santo domingo Maois the head municipality of the Valverde provincein the northwest of the country.

It is the largest city of the Dominican northwest and the centre of the region. There are no mountains to the west of the city and it is common to see a "red" sky at sunset; it is a very dry region and there is much dust in the air which gives the sky a red color. For most of its history, the region was called "El Despoblado"; that means a region without any population, because it is a very dry region and agriculture was not possible.

When the governor of the Spanish colony gave the order Mao santo domingo that everybody living on the northern coast had to move inland, some people came to live around the present Mao.
