Owner description: Altos de Chavon, is an architectural wonder, a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village perched high above the Chavón River. The village was designed by Dominican architect Jose Antonio Caro, and created by Italian master designer and cinematographer Roberto Coppa. Dominican artisans handcrafted the stone pathways, decorative ironwork, furniture and enchanting buildings, reviving almost forgotten crafts of metal work and stone carving. Under Coppa's direction, each stone was hand cut, each wooden door frame was handcrafted and each wrought-iron detail hand-forged. Construction of the village began in 1976 and the village was inaugurated in 1982 with the concert of Frank Sinatra at the amphitheater. Altos de Chavon was built as a center of culture for the Dominican people.

It is definitely worth the trip to see the excellent modern day creation depicting an ancient village in a beautiful setting overlooking the Chavon. River and gorge. Shop for Amber or local beautiful Larimar

The view from the village to the river Chavon is awesome, the climate was perfect and we saw a wedding taking place. The food was good with variety of restaurants to choose: Italian, meat, hamburgers, fish. The teather is great and similar to a Greek coliseum

Small shops and restaurants in a little stone village above the Altos Chavon River. The outdoor amphitheater has wonderful concerts.

Nice 1976 recreation of an old Italian Village with Church, shops, and theatre. Live musicians play authentic tunes and local crafts are quality and priced within reason.
