  • The National Pantheon is one of the first churches of the Colonial City and part of the environment of buildings that were granted to the Jesuits in the Spanish colony of Santo Domingo. Over time, long time, in the second half of the 20th century, the State became the building in disuse and deterioration to honor heroes and outstanding personages of Dominican society. The building is very beautiful and the perennial honor guard gives you respect and Majesty. Beautiful lamp that decorates the central atrium was a gift from general Franco of Spain. It is very fast and this street more beautiful of the cosmopolitan city of America, Las Damas.

  • Whenever I can I go, because its access is free. It seems to me that it is a magnificent building and that serve as a resting place for heroes of the homeland, gives a solemn air which I like very much. There are tour guides at the door, but to decline its offer to explain it to you, they leave you you to stroll freely through the site without any problems. It is recommended to visit it and will not take you more than 30 minutes.

  • 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.
