  • We saw it from the outside during our stay in Santo Domingo. It looks like the White House and has an outdoor park held really well. Designed by Guido D'Alessandro is a pride for us Italians. If you can't get inside you always have the satisfaction of a souvenir photo with the guards who guard it.
