Santiago’s Monument will soon have an elevator

The administrator of the Monument to the Heroes of the Restoration in Santiago de los Caballeros, José Manuel Atuñano, has announced that “at the latest within a month” a modern elevator will be functioning at this important city monument. The elevator is essential for emergency situations and so that persons with disabilities and children can reach the top of the city landmark.

Antuñano said that all of the parts for the new elevator are now on hand and that on the 29th of this month the installation will begin.

The Monument, a major landmark and symbol of the city of Santiago, has been without this service for more than three years. Initially the work was supposed to have been done by National Assets Agency (Bienes Nacionales) but now the Ministry of Culture has decided to take on the project by itself.

It was announced that visitors will only be allowed into the facility from Friday until Sunday and from 9am to 7pm.

The elevator was purchased at a cost of RD$2 million, donated by the Association of Cigar Producers (Pro-Cigar).
