  • This time I was able to see it from a distance and it was exciting to know that inside there is the tomb of Christopher Columbus hoping to return soon

  • It is a monument in honor of the Dominican heroes. The site is nice but lacks interest non-Dominicans since it is not possible to identify the works of each character represented

  • This is a national monument whose entrance is part of a fotress and guarded by military. It is interesting to see the busts on pedestels of past presidents. There are pleasant places to sit and plenty of shade. However, this is NOT the place to carouse with your friends. Military will politely but firmly enforce respect. So this is a quiet place to sit for contemplation or perhaps reading a book.
  • Definitely a must stop as you walk around. The best would be to take a guided tour around the area and be a place you stop to take in the sights. Suprising view inside without giving away much. If you nearby then come and see a part of history...
  • it was good not to crowded and shops around were very clean, a bit pricy, we stopped at a coffee shop got a cappuccino and was the wrist a ever had all I tasted was cinnamon I needed it tried drinking it but I couldn't sorry I won't be back for another
  • Dominican History. Interesting place. Safe to walk.
