Colonial Heritage - Puerta de la Misericordia:

Once part of the city wall (built at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th century), it was the place where the Dominican nationalists gathered on the night of February 27th, 1844 before they marched to the Puerta del Conde to declare their country's independence from Spain.
