Visit a rustic Mediterranean village in the heart of the Dominican Republic at Altos de Chavon. Built in the late 1970s, the replica of a 16th century European-style village was designed by Dominican architect Jose Antonio Caro and Italian artist Roberto Coppa. Roam the charming cobblestone streets and quaint courtyards, admiring the shops, galleries, and restaurants that look as if they’ve been there for centuries. Don't miss the amphitheater, a venue that has hosted many famous performers. You can relax in a cafe and enjoy the picturesque vista, purchase authentic art pieces, or pay a visit to the archaeology museum.

Beautiful vistas, must eat at Chilango! Ask for Vidal. Beautiful and scenic. There were not many shops open when we went but Chilango taqueria was our lunch stop every day! more »
This is truly a must! If you are lucky to come to Dominican Republic this has to be one of the places to come. If you are planning a wedding, the sightseeing is breathtaking. It’s a magical place. Ladies do not, I repeat, do not wear high heels since it’s a historical place and streets are made of stones. Wear flats, wedges, sneakers, flip flops, but not high heels. There’s are lots of restaurant around which are very good. Bring cameras because you will fall in love with every corner.
This is a great place for vacation. You can really enjoy in this Place. This is more like a real paradise. And also this is a historic place.
