On the 30th of July, the town of La Romana was given a new symbol of hope. The Aldea Cultural Santa Rosa de Lima was opened in order to strip the Fortaleza Santa Rosa de Lima (former jail in La Romana) from all the pain and embarrassment that it had represented for all of us who live in and cherish this beautiful town.

Both exhibits so powerful, you have to go see them. Both are open until October 30th.
