On the street Calle Las Damas,it is one of the Historical Buildings that you should see. Nothing that special. It was a Church that now houses the remains of National Figures in tombs. I like the paintings on the ceiling.

You can see the chandelier of General Franco and the bars of Hitler and swastikas. Trujillo never buried there. After the murder of his rise and fall of the dictatorship of the place turned into...

This is one of the top things to see in the colonial zone since it's the most important historical building in the entire country. The national pantheon is a place of pride and honor for the Dominican people.

This is a place you should visit when you walk on Calle Las Damas...Is a beautiful colonial building where national figures are buried there. You will only need less than 1/2 hour to walk inside.

I kind of dropped in by accident. My travel partners was a the hotel, and I took a stroll through Calle de las Damas and saw this place. Interesting info (and not too much) at the exhibition.

It was originally a Jesuit Church built in the XVIII century and therefore bearing the seal of the Baroque. After the expulsion of the Jesuits in 1767, the building had been a tobacco warehouse, school and theatre. In 1956 the dictator Trujillo, prone to Paphos, ordered the Spanish architect Javier Barroso to convert the building into a national Pantheon, suggesting... More

This place is a where almost all our Independence heroes are. Is a basically a huge vault, marmol one I guess, very quiet and with permanent guards in there. If you like architecture this a good 5 minutes stop within the colonial zone. There is no fee to enter and all other historical places are near, so, in one day... More

This colonial building honors a lot of our history heros. It's impressive to find them all together in one sacred place. It's well kept and very easy to visit.

An area set aside to remember some of the hero's of the Republic. With an eternal flame and vigilant guard walking their patrol. All are not buried here but are remember here. A quiet somber place to see. Area was well maintained and a place of tribute to the people of the Republic. Free to see. Quiet and respect is... More
