National Pantheon Dominican Republic
By Amy Adejokun Amy Adejokun Section editor

Discover National Pantheon

On the opposite side of the Nicolas de Ovando Sofitel, visitors can admire the National Pantheon, which holds the remains of the Dominican Republic's historic heroes, especially those of the War of Independence. Originally a Jesuit church built between 1714 and 1745, the building was successively a tobacco warehouse, a seminary and a theatre in 1860, before being turned into a Pantheon in 1955 by the dictator Trujillo. The central nave is in the shape of a cross with chapels on the lateral sides.
