Definitely something to do. Great restaurants all around it. Please be careful with the pocket pickers. Great historical site.

This is a beautiful monument dedicated to the independence of the Dominican Republic. This is a must see while in the city of Santiago.

Beautiful and well-maintained (though the elevator was under maintenance at the time of visit) historic monument to the Battle of Santiago (after which Dominicans first declared independence from Haiti), with amazing views of the city. Good restaurants nearby. Affordable admission (60 pesos, or about $1.50 USD). I had a great time.

From the top of the monument, you have great views of the city which is completely surrounded by mountains. It was told to us that the Monument was originally erected by the the dictator Trujillo as a shrine to himself with a statue of only him in it. It has been redone with historical figures responsible for the restoration.

We weren't expecting much when we arrived but were pleasantly surprised! It is a mini-museum inside as you climb each floor and then you are rewarded with nice views of the city when you make it to the 5th floor (I think that is how high we were able to go). Definitely worth a visit!

Great views over the city even without going to the top of the tower. Nice peaceful setting away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

This is spectacular and give a glimpse of the history. At night it also lights up with multi-colors. It has a great view of the city you can also sit on the grass in front of it.
