Puerta De La Misericordia

La Puerta de la Misericordia, translated as the Gate of Mercy, is named after the role this gate has played in many natural disasters. Injured and displaced would often gather here for help. Later, in 1844, Ramon Matias Mella would fire the shots that declared the nation's independence from Haiti.


Once part of the stone wall that protected Santo Domingo, the gate is marked by the archway and golden metal gates.
