El Obelisco, Santo Domingo
Categories: Monuments, Tourist Spots
Pay tribute to the lives lost and those who suffered under the regime of brutal president Rafael Trujillo in the 1930s at El Obelisco. Built during Trujillo's time in office to commemorate the president, the monument has since become emblematic of an altogether more peaceful anti-Trujillo Dominican Republic, with murals adorning the monolith displaying messages of harmony. Located on El Malecon, the obelisk is visible from most points on the street thanks to its height and striking colors. Put El Obelisco and other Santo Domingo attractions into our Santo Domingo holiday planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

Berk CornieVery representative of the city site, however can't give 5 because I consider that to be a city so important and with a symbol like this so beautiful and representative there is very little road safety on the road, my God hundred of people have to cross the street to lucky and truth because there is not a shred of traffic on a highway where a machine gun of vehicles circulating. It is that you almost die to cross.show original
