Mo to Su from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AMFormerly known as Anacaona Plaza, Santo Domingo Plaza and Plaza of the Ex-Convict Dominico, this town square has played a dominant historical role. Here the Haitian separatists battled for their independence at the polls in June 1843 and the National party won. Later it became the site of bullfights. In 1880, Eugenio María de Hostos built the first Teacher's college; it faces the square. Since 1930, in the middle of the square, there is a statue of Duarte, considered the father of the Dominican Republic.
