Downtown Santo Domingo Catedral Primada de America
Catedral Primada de America – Plaza Entrance
Heading around to other Entrance … some Saint guards the gate
The other entrance … not as impressive
Even the Church looks like a fort – for good reason. In 1586 Sir Francis Drake of England pillaged and burned the city, which survived only to be invaded by the French and Haitians. Drake lived in the Church for 25 days they say.
Statue of Arzobispo Meriño. I could not discover who he was, but he’s got a statue.
Crowding in …
But inside is impressive
Vaulted Gothic ceiling
I like Churches. They have Altars.
And I can thank God for my many blessings.
