We will depart early in the morning in our comfortable buses to La Romana to make our first stop in Altos de Chavón.
Altos de Chavón is an architectural marvel, a replica of a Mediterranean villa from the 16th century, on the river Chavón. The villa was designed by the Dominican architect José Antonio Caro and created by the great Italian designer and cinematographer, Roberto Coppa. The Dominican artisans made by hand the stone paths, the iron decoration, the furniture and the charming buildings, reviving some works in metal and carved stones that seemed forgotten. Under Coppa’s direction, each stone was hand-cutted, each wooden frame and detail in forged iron were also handmade.
The construction of the villa began in 1976 and was inaugurated in 1982 with a concert in the amphitheatre with Frank Sinatra. Walk its stone streets and enjoy the greatness of the architecture of yesteryear, all while admiring every detail and the immense quality of the handmade craftsmanship. With picturesque shops, boutiques, art galleries, gourmet restaurants and an archeological museum, these are just some of the samples of the world waiting for you among the colorful cliffs of Altos de Chavón.
Today, this amazing village is home to restaurants, boutiques, museums and the Altos de Chavón Design School, affiliated with Parsons School of Art and Design in New York.
Then we will continue to Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic.
