Description

The National Pantheon is a mausoleum where the important figures of the Dominican Republic rest.
It is a monument in the Colonial Zone of the 18th century with remarkable architecture, originally it was a Jesuit church, then a tobacco factory and a theater. In 1956 the dictator Trujillo gave the order to restore the building and transform it into a Pantheon to house the remains of the nation's heroes, civilians and soldiers.

Some of the 42 people and personalities buried in the National Pantheon:

  • Antonio Duverge: Puerto Rican soldier of French origin who was very active during the Dominican Republic's war for independence.
  • Gregorio Luperón: Was a Dominican soldier and politician. He was interim president of the Dominican Republic between 1879 and 1880.
  • Salomé Urena: Was a 19th century Dominican poet and pedagogue.
  • Pedro Santana: He was the first constitutional president of the Dominican Republic.
The National Pantheon has around 35 empty spaces for future heroes of the Dominican Republic and an unlabelled tomb dedicated to the Unknown Soldier. A guard in gala uniform stands guard at the entrance to the monument.
