Visit to Altos De Chavon was the last point in the day trip to Catalina Island and it was probably the best part of the whole trip. We grew up in the old continent and seeing a part of old Europe here in DR was a wonderful surprise. We are planning to come back here for a whole day to see more. We recommend visit to this place to all ages interested in history and old architecture. Visit with small children could be a bit overwhelming but not impossible. Entry fee is $25.00 per person and we feel for what you will see here is very low priced. There some places to eat, unfortunately we were given so little time and had no chance to check them out but know about two of them Gino in Trastevere and La Cantina (Dominican and Cuban specialties), and we are sure will stop in next time. Souvenir and art shops all over. Places to take pictures are countless. You could take a little stroll on top of a donkey too. Gorgeous little Church were famous people got married. Will add some pictures for readers to see. The guide told us a story about who, when and why built this place. It was interesting but there was very little truth in it. Read about the facts before you get there, but try not to correct your guide if you come here with the organized group. It takes away from the adventure. Just so you know the place was finished in 1980. May not be old at all but it is certainly beautiful.
Wonderful place we highly recommend.
