  • One enters this building and it is a sure thing, that is not any building, no, this building is of national importance. Here commemorates the freedom of the people and the victims for this freedom. A real impressive church. Here, the pride of the Dominican population is felt, as well the respect of today's freedom. An audio guide is also available. You get very useful information but of a city guide or Museum Guide. Both are certainly interesting. The costs keep in the frame and about tipping the staff looks forward as well.

  • 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.
