    It is one of the emblems of Santiago, if you're in town you have to visit it. I recommend upload it, since you have a panoramic view of the entire city. It has a sort of Museum, but I found it very interesting. Vale worth visit to see the monument and the view. When I went the elevator was out of service, so I had to climb a narrow staircase 5 floors.

    It embodies magnificence and elegance. Very well located on a hill, you can see it from several parts of the city. The surroundings are very well maintained. A must go if you are ever in the Cibao region and definitely in the city of Santiago.

    Nice place to walk around. You can see Santiago from the top. Very windy.

    One of the most popular places in Santiago. Surrounded by many nice restaurants. Good place to go with the family on a Sunday afternoon, have a picnic. You're allowed to have alcoholic beverages in this place. Right in front of the Cibao Theatre.
