The beauty of this construction is in its simple lines and the height of the Bavarian Baroque style brick towers. The church is a neoclassical style with Creole influence. The first stone was laid in 1747 and it was built by the architect Juan de los Santos Vasconcellos. Later, in 1795 and 1796, the work was transferred to the architect JoaquĆ­n Toesca. Inside you can appreciate its largeness and moderation. Besides the colonial paintings on the inside you can learn more about the life of Santo Domingo, the church's namesake.
