Convento de Santo Domingo, San Juan

(85+ reviews on the web)
Religious Site Tourist Spot
Though at first glance an unassuming convent, Convento de Santo Domingo boasts historical significance thanks to its ties to General Jose de San Martin--one of the leaders of South America's struggle for independence from the Spanish empire. San Martin stayed in one of the rooms in the convent during his visit to San Juan. Today you can survey the still-intact furniture in his room, adding an extra layer of history to your visit. Take the excellent guided tour and learn about the 1944 earthquake, which destroyed much of the building but left San Martin's quarters uncompromised. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to Convento de Santo Domingo and many more San Juan attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's San Juan trip generator.

  • For those who like our history is a place that deserves to be visited for its importance, does not have much to see but if to think and imagine that there he wrote the most important feat of San Martin

  • Old but very well maintained building. You can visit with guide watching videos to complement the experience and information. Here is the cell where Saint Martin stayed while he was planning the crossing of the Andes.
