“Nice Quick detour”
Reviewed August 4, 2012

Originally built as a Jesuit church, today it stands as a national symbol of the Dominican Republic and serves as the final resting place of the Republic's most honored citizens.
Jesuits held mass here from 1746-1767. After 1767 it was used as a tobacco warehouse and then as a theater. The theater was the venue for the pro-independence organization La Trinitaria, which staged shows under aliases such as La Filantrópica and La Dramática. From its stages, the ideas were set in motion for a free and sovereign republic by national heroes like Juan Pablo Duarte, Ramon Matias Mella, and Francisco del Rosario Sanchez.

“National Pride”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

A glimpse of the National Identity of Dom Rep.

Must see are the frescos and the memorial plaques.

Dive deeper into the history of the country (it actually starts only with the arrival of the Europeans in 1492, I found very little of the 15000 years of human occupancy prior to that).
