Real heros

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

This was a surprising visit. The Pantheon is open during a Saturday afternoon and this was a nice surprise for us. It is easy to visit, there are tour guides around that for a good tip give you a good piece of history. It is very well kept and although small, very impressive

The National Pantheon is a sample of simply elegant architecture. The domed ceilings, ceiling paintings and chandelier were absolutely beautiful.

As the title said here you have part of the history of the Dominican Republic summarized in one place, you can get a local guide they are very helpful and not expensive, they have an id for identification purposes. Many historical people buried here like Salome Urena, Pedro Henrique Urena, Pedro Santana, Emilio Prud'Homme, Eugenio Maria De Hostos, Jose Reyes... More

This mausoleum honors the the most revered of Dominican soldiers and citizens (Think of it as the American equivalent of a combination of the Tomb of the Unknown solider at Arlington Cemetery, and maybe the Soviet Red Square). Opened as a Jesuit church in 1746, it has served many different roles in its history, including a tobacco warehouse , and... More

If you love art in any way, then you will love this place. A former religious building, is currently decorated with an unique candelabra given from the Spanish dictator Franco to the Generalissimo Trujillo. The guard change is nice and the Anthem play at noon.

This was a nice bit of history. Learning about the final resting place of many heroes or famous people in the Dominican Republic. The building was used for different purposes before it became a National Pantheon. It was used as a tobacco warehouse and a theater. It is beautiful at it's current state & definitely worth a stop during a... More

We ended up getting a tour from one of the many guides you'll see standing around that make it seem like they're just being friendly, but then expect a tip at the end and try to get you to pay them for a tour around town (it's free to get into the Pantheon otherwise). This is one of the sights... More
