This obelisk is a memorial to the Hermanas Mirabal, three sisters who opposed the dictator Rafael Trujillo and were murdered. The painting "Alegoría a la libertad” was done by the Dominican artist, Dustin Muñoz. It's located along the Malecón.

Simple, very detailed and beautifully painted monument in the middle of the Malecon. Reminds me of the Washington Monument in D.C. It sits in the center of a major traffic circle along the Malecon sea wall in Santo Domingo.
