Centro León Tours

Santiago De Los Caballeros is the tobacco capital of the Dominica Republic, home to the country’s cigar barons, so it’s no surprise that one of the city’s greatest museums was built by the tobacco fortunes of the León Jimenez family. Centro León has one of the best collections of Dominican art and culture housed in a stunning building with Caribbean sunlight streaming from the crystal dome, and three permanent exhibitions describing the island’s biodiversity, the history of the native Taino people, and Dominican culture, including a beautiful collection of Dominican art and photography. There are also galleries with temporary exhibits and a sculpture garden and aviary outside.

Practical Info

More than just art exhibits, Centro León is a popular gathering spot for locals who come for events like the Friday night mixers with live music and drinks and snacks from the café. Check the calendar online to see what’s happening.
