Man-made to look medieval .. a shopping district within a gated community of millionaire homes .. some nice views of the river below but otherwise not what I would consider a tourism-worthy spot.

We spent some time in Altos before boarding our paddleboat tour on the Chavon River. Altos overlooks the river. Altos is in La Romana, Dominican Republic. Altos was a 1970's re-creation of a European village of the 16th or 17th century. It is charming if not authentic. I have some photos.

The atmosphere and setting are incomparable for a romantic dinner. Food was good, service was good, and the price was high, but deserved.
