Count’s Gate, or Puerta del Conde in Spanish, is a historic site located in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic. Originally built in 1543 as Fort San Genaro, it was designed to defend the city from invading armies and pirate attacks. The site was renamed Count’s Gate in 1655, after the successful defense of the city by Captain General Bernardino de Meneses y Bracamonte, Count of Peñalva, against an English invasion.

Today, it serves as the main entrance to Independence Park and is a symbol of Dominican independence. The site features several monuments and structures, including the Altar of the Fatherland, where the remains of the founding fathers are housed.
