  • Lugar de silencio por esas personas héroes que dieron en muchos casos su vida por sus ideales, lugar de meditación y respeto, de recogimiento y agradecimiento por su historia por su legado 
  • Le Panthéon de Saint Domingue dans un batiment aux solides pierres d'époque. Les Personnages importants de l'histoire locale reposent ici. 
  • Me encanto, es uno de los pocos lugares que no cobran la entrada. Me guío Nelson, muy buen guía.- Justo estuve para el cambio de guardia, la que es cada 2 horas.-

  • They have one Puerto Rican who wants to have their remains sent back once it is independent.
  • Hermoso
  • Heroes of the Revolution are buried here, looks like a huge church but a normal building from the outside.
  • a different experience magnificent painted ceiling by visiting a cemetery.
