Monument of Santiago (Monumento a los Héroes de la Restauración) Tours

This eight-story structure located in downtown Santiago was built by the former dictator Trujillo and later became a monument praising the soldiers who battled for Dominican Republic’s independence from Spain. It was built in 1944 and designed by Henry Gazon Bona.

Travelers will find this stunning white monument, which stretches high into the sky, at the city’s east end. Visitors can learn how the Monument of Santiago was originally erected to honor Rafael Leonidas Trujillo and later was re-dedicated to fearless soldiers who fought against the Spaniards between 1863 and 1865. It’s the perfect place to take in vast city views from atop the hill and the nearby park is an ideal spot for an afternoon picnic under the shade of a tree.

The monument can be visited independently, or seen as part of a Santiago city tour.

Practical Info

The Monument of Santiago is located on a hill at the east end of Santiago’s downtown area on Avenida Coronel Juan Maria Lora. It is open daily from 9am until 5pm and closed on Mondays.
