  • It has statues and graves of Duarte, Sánchez y Mella.Hay a flame inside (burning oil coconut). The environment, with the remains of the ancient walls, is well maintained.

  • Park independence place where he was given the first trabucazo of the Dominican freedom, is a shame to the gate of the count put you that crap of plastering; It is perhaps the only complaint I have modifications that made it to this emblematic place, which to some eye-pleasing results.

  • Typical military monument, the good point is that is located in what used to be downtown from 19th century until the 60's
