beginning of the XVIth century, is located in the heart of the
majestic Santo Domingo colonial city, in front of a peaceful
park, close by the convent of the Dominicans. Classified "World
Heritage Site" by UNESCO, the building was bequeathed to the
foundation of a "beaterio" by the widow Dona Maria of Arana
before her departure for Spain in 1556.
During centuries, a community of women who chose to withdraw from the everyday life to follow a mystic and spiritual path in a monastic atmosphere grew between those stony walls. When, further to the emergence of feminine religious orders, many of those women entered convents, El Beaterio gradually became obsolete. Many years later, the building received in its breast a private school which remained until the 80's.
