  • Very nice looking architecture and statues but not much more. Very pretty, and free, but only good for about 20 minutes worth of looking at unless you are a student of Dominican history.  more »

  • Honestly, it didnt look that well maintainted. I guess the Dominicans have sentimental value about this place but this place was just average.
  • Is not the same as it used to but you can get some useful information about the independence of Dominican Republic and the surrounding fence always show something different about the Dominican culture and some social and political events, is updated every month with a new subject with a lot of pictures
  • Very nice photo spot with independence hero memorials and an eternal flame.
  • Nice place to take some pictures. Wait for the soldiers to fold the flags!
  • Nice small historical place. Go see statues and grave of founding fathers
