Altos de Chavón

star-4
246 Reviews

If you’re wondering what it was like several centuries ago on the island of the Dominican Republic, then you should head to Altos de Chavón, a recreated 16th-century village built in La Romana near the Chavón River. Sculpted in stone, the site is an impressive example of what a Mediterranean-inspired village would have looked like on the island long ago.

Construction began in 1976 with the goal of having Altos de Chavón serve as a center for Dominican Republic culture. The site was created using the local handiwork of the people of the island; much of the stonework and metal carvings seen here were handcrafted by local artisans, which continues to draw attention to the craftwork that was once so prominent in island life. Much of Altos de Chavón is made of stone, and its coastal location provides a dramatic and inspiring backdrop. Visitors to Altos de Chavón will find restaurants, shops and even a 5,000-seat amphitheater where concerts and other performances are held.

Altos de Chavón still focuses on the cultural and artistic elements of the island, making it a great spot for visitors to explore.

Later, you’ll make your way to the magical village of Altos de Chavon, in La Romana. This ancient Mediterranean-style jewel, surrounded by cobbled streets and buildings of coral stone and terracotta blocks, is also known as the "City of Artists" as on more than one occasion, served as a source of inspiration for several film directors. Other of the most eye-catching feature in Altos de Chavon is its open-air amphitheater, inaugurated by Frank Sinatra in 1982.
