  • At the end of the 19th century in the same place that occupies the Cathedral, rose a tempo wooden in honor to San Pedro Apóstol. This building was the result of a collaboration between Dominican and American builders. Unfortunately, the temple was consumed by a fire on October 8, 1896. A Board for the creation of a temple of bricks whose drawings and execution would be hands of French engineer Eduardo García was formed in 1902. It was in the year 1910, when began the construction of this beautiful parish church. However with the death of Eduardo García, the work fell into the hands of the Nechodoma engineer who changed plans, opting for a neo-Gothic style. The Cathedral became the first concrete building built in the country with the first cargo of cement which arrived on the island, marking the beginning of the urban modernization of the Dominican Republic. The work took many years to complete because works were paralysed by lack of financial resources. It was not until the beginning of the 50's that were in the final stages of its construction with the help of the Government. The Cathedral is noted for its giant bell tower which can be seen from any point of the city, and romantic interior with arches of half point and beautiful stained-glass windows created by the German teacher Gustav Van Treck. It was in the year 1997 that the temple was reopened after an extensive renovation process
