Columbus Lighthouse (Faro a Colón) Tours

Columbus Lighthouse (Faro a Colón)
Like much of this capital city, Faro a Colon, a bold and imposing cross-shaped structure, serves as a tribute to one of the world’s most famous explorers. Built in a style that’s more urban office building than coastal treasure, this mausoleum and museum does have one distinct feature that’s responsible for its namesake. Columbus Lighthouse projects a unique cross-shaped beam with a light so bright it can be seen from the shores of Puerto Rico.

Travelers who venture to this concrete structure can explore a vast collection of Columbian jewelry, an ancient boat from Cuba and what locals say are the remains of Christopher Columbus.

Practical Info

Faro a Colon is located in a park in Santo Domingo between Avenida Mirador del Este and Avenida Faro a Colon. 
Address: Between Avenida Mirador del Este and Avenida Faro a Colon., Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic

 We will pick up at your hotel until Holy Sunday and we will head towards the eastern part of the city to begin our tour in the National Park Los Tres Ojos.Once we get there, we will enter to visit one of the best known underground caves of the region, which has been formed by the rise of rivers, giving rise to three natural lakes. Why this name? It is because of the eye shape that can be seen in the interior lagoons. Probably, the cave, which was discovered in 1916, was a regular place for the celebration of sacrifices by the native Indians.During the trip through the Three Eyes, you will have the opportunity to contemplate the rich fauna that lives in this paradise of crystalline waters, like a wide variety of fish and bats.
