  • It is a place where are the remains of the men more important to our nation, including many Presidents of the Republic.

  • This pantheon of located in the famous street of the ladies, just before arriving at the Museum of the Royal houses and their entrance is free so it's a must-see if you are in the colonial zone of Santo Domingo. In 1958, during the era of Trujillo, was restored, baptizing it afterwards as a "National Panthéon": a mausoleum to house the remains of the national, civil and military heroes. The place always a military guard has which makes the place even more picturesque. It has a very nice architecture so it is highly recommended to visit.

  • National Landmark, here lies a few of our independence heroes. Solemn and very well taken care of.
  • Beautiful ornate tombs of significant contributors to the Dominican Republic. It's free to walk in and loon around but local guides will charge for a tour.
  • It is a very interesting place but the guide said the tour was free but at the end try to charge a lot of money, pretending it is a collaboration
  • Beautiful building and respect for these historical figures.
  • Very informative guides. Amazing displays of old artifacts.
