El Faro a Colón
Designed by architect Joe Gleave, this monument to Christopher Columbus is a 46-meter tall cross, constructed of completely white marble. El Faro a Colón has housed the remains of the explorer since his tomb was moved from the Cathedral of Santa María la Menor in 1992. At night, powerful lights illuminate this Christian symbol and project its shadow against the sky. Areas inside the monument are used as exhibition rooms, archives, a library and a museum.
I was born in El Faro before contructed,I used to played a lot whith friends.The only good thins that has is that brings a lot of tourist to the zone.But at the sametime was bad,because we think that Chritopher Columbus don't deserve the Monument,When there's million of people hungry's in the country.He just went to take our Taino's gold.
This is a very impressive monument and burial site of Christopher Columbus, or atleast some of him as is disputed today by Spain. It is a beautiful park. Pope John Paul II himself visited here. One of his protective vehicles is on display there. The gardens, the landscape, the awe of the place sitting right on the Caribbean Sea is quite a spectacle, its too bad so many people where displaced into slums so the monument could be built. In the museum there is a room for every country in the world with a small collection of artifacts from each one. The seplachure of Columbus is like 3 stories high, its incredible. I would definately want to see this place if visiting Santo Domingo.
