“Interesting if you have a good guide”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2013

I'm not a big history guide so I wouldn't pick this attraction on my own but as part of an organized tour with an interesting guide, this was a nice stop on a tour of the city.

“Must visit - an unbelievable convent”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

This is a church, museum, and an active convent. Place dates back to 500 years ago. Its also the resting place of Latin America's two popular Catholic saints. Take the guided tour. The history in this place is amazing. There's also a wheelchair available for use while in the convent. Highly recommended.

“pretty church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

On my city tour, I had seen the church on the hill with the two patron saints whose heads/skulls are displayed in Santo Domingo on the right side of the altar. For that reason alone, it was interesting to see. I was actually inside during a mass.
