  • Take a guided tour or the history of this visit will be lost to you. The guard changing and movement was very interesting. Happens on the half hour.  more »
  • It is one of the first churches of the colonial city and now honors the outstanding characters of Dominican society. In the central atrium, there is a lamp gift of general Franco of Spain. It is free but there are guides that accompany you and tell you who are and then they ask for tips.

  • If you're in the colonial zone in Dominican republic, please pass by the phanteon, it's free and a quick in and out where you can learn about the heroes that forged the country. Very well kept and it feels historic when you're inside.
  • Cool place. Sadly, very small, and there are a lot of tourists always.
  • In this pantheon are buried heroes of Dominican history. Definitely a mystic place
  • A beautiful place with a beautiful painting on the ceiling. The guard did an awesome job!
  • National Landmark, here lies a few of our independence heroes. Solemn and very well taken care of.
