This modern Roman Catholic Church towers over La Vega’s central square and Parque Duarte, with its imposing grey stone design. The church took 15 years to build, and was completed in 1992. The exterior walls were painted grey to express man’s limited capacity to reflect divine illumination. The cathedral is one of the few in the world where the statue of Christ–this one standing 5 meters (15 feet) high–is portrayed as already having resurrected and not dying on the cross. The cathedral, one of the largest in the Dominican Republic, can accommodate more than 1,000 worshippers.
