  • Certainly worth seeing in daylight and at night. I arrived just before 4 PM so could not go to the upper level. But view is great as well as the bronze statues of the heroes (one woman). This is a lively area at night with multiple bars below the monument. I was there on Independence Day so the Dominicans were in a partying mood. Heard some great live music.
  • Good view of the city and got to experience the fun at night that is more lively with music food and people and during the day its calm less people but got to see more of this beautiful culture and its scholars. Meet great people on the way as well as hustlers who strive to make a living. Overall very nice. Will come back to go inside the monument and share more pictures.
