Photographer's Note

Between “Las Casas Reales” and the “El Alcazar de Colon” , one can find the “Convento de San Ignacio de Loyola”, a jesuit monastery with its church built in 1743.

Today, the church is ornated of portraits and graves of the Nation’s heroes. This was established as the National Pantheon in 1958 by the dictator Trujillo.

Here it’s a close-up of the top front wall of the church with its bells taken at sunrise, the 1st day we arrived in Santo Domingo while walking around in the colonial area. I did love a lot the sun reflection on this particular stone.

Original framing, rotated a bit, sharpened and gamma corrected.
