- Built in 1976 and located at the center of the Parque Independencia, this white-marble mausoleum is where some heroes of the Dominican Republic are interred. Here the leaders of the 1844 Independence movement from Haiti are buried, including Juan Pablo Duarte , Francisco del Rosario Sánchez and Ramón Matías Mella. An "eternal flame" is kept lit in memory of the patriots and floral offerings are common during commemorative dates. February 27th is when Independence from Haiti is celebrated.
