La Capilla de San Andrés

La Capilla de San Andrés / The Chapel of San Andrés

This was the second hospital to be built in the colonial city of Santo Domingo.

The use of brick as its major building material made this chapel a marvel. Built next to the Hospital is Chapel Padre Billini, both seem to blend together to almost form one structure. The wooden sculpture inside the chapel is very unique. Here, it is told, is the place where the people of Santo Domingo conspired and planned their revolt over the Haitian occupation in 1844.
