This is one of the many places in the Colonial Zone that shows how proud the people are of their liberators and their glorious history! It’s a beautiful building. Now I realize why Puerto Rico is not as passionate about the history of the island......More

Not a particularly interesting place to visit , but worth the effort since this classical building does offer some insight into Dominican history , and it's so near other historical attractions in "downtown" ( colonial section ) Santo Domingo .

Lovely paintings. hard to believe that they are so old and well maintained. One would think that they had been touched up but I was told that they have never been touched. Make sure you take off your hat; they consider this disrespectful. Hard to...More

This was obviously a church at one time, and it is only the inside that has changed. There is an eternal flame in the centre, and a beautiful domed ceiling above what used to be the altar. It is free to enter the building.
