Each time when I pass to Punta Cana I stop by to Basilica. It's amazing place, with strong energy. Good organization all around.

You have to get to this place and fill... More

We didn't go inside the Basilica, but it looks really neat from the outside. We did go into the museum and there is a lot of really cool artifacts in. Worth the $5 per person to see.

The large concrete structure with decorative elements from the front. Enough raw inside. Interesting lighting of the altar. Worth seeing. Entrance fee 1UDS / person.

$10 is the typical cost of the tour......we were quoted $15 just an FYI. Be sure to see the museum first! It gives you more information about the sites. $5 is the cost for the museum tour. Well worth the money!

This Basilica is breath taking inside. I want to say there are roughly 13 Charles and each one have different and beautiful architecture and paintings.

This place is a modern version of what a Architect think a church should look like, one heck of a lot of cement used to build this interesting amount of Palm trees planted around the large property which refers to Palm sundays the church is located in the centre of town

The authors of the project so unusual churches were the French Andre Segonzac and Pierre Dupré, won the tender in the midst of world war II in 1943. Construction began in 1954 and ended in 1971. Long, by the standards of other cathedrals. The most unusual thing about this Cathedral is an 80-meter concrete arch. In 1979, the Cathedral was... More
