Explore La Romana Obelisk in Dominican Republic

Hundreds of kilometres of coastline define the Dominican Republic, white sand beaches, enormous palm trees, rocky cliffs, wind-swept sand dunes and mangrove swamps. Fishing villages where the coast is used to moor boats, or indulgent tourist areas with aquamarine waters.

But we can also find this country’s present and past. Colonial districts, restored monasteries or cobble stone-paved streets like those of yesteryear. There are also ruins from more recent decades and the traces of the Taíno indigenous people.

Visit the La Romana Obelisk

La Romana owes its name to an old Roman scale that was used to weigh goods that passed through the port. Some of the most well-known places in the city are the obelisk, Santa Rosa de Lima church, Central Park, Rotonda Park, or the monument to the Bible.

The obelisk monument was built in the 1950s during the dictatorship of Rafael Leónidas Trujillo, as a representation of his power over the people. Following the model of the monument to George Washington in Washington, D.C., the obelisk is a much smaller version in the centre of La Romana, painted on all four sides with contemporary and historical representations of Dominican life.
