  • Fray Antón de Montesinos was one of the defenders of our indigenous to the Spanish in Hispaniola Island invasion (as we called) the monument this abandoned... the last time I went it was very dirty and does not have a good attraction to contemplate it, only from afar. For me, there would be a visit that do not spend more than 20 minutes.

  • When we see this monument recall the history of Christopher Columbus, when I get to the island, is good to visit these monument to meet with our history. I would like to add that we must take care of it more.

  • East in very bad state facilities is abandoned, I do not recommend to visit these facilities for now until the Government restored it with newly. The monument to Fray Antón de Montesinos, built in 1982, one of the most colorful of the Malecon of Santo Domingo, 27 years later is damaged and abandoned. The lack of maintenance, lighting and surveillance has contributed to convert it from a center of recreation to a focus of pollution, den of pigeons, consumers of drugs and holedores of cement. Abandonment and neglect by the authorities of that monument is at odds with the then-fighter and defender of human rights. In his advent sermon points out: tell me with what right and with which justice you have in so cruel and horrible servitude Indian aquestos?.
