Altos de Chavon is a replica of a 16th century Mediterranean village. The village is a place of inspiration, learning and artistic expression. Its diverse educational and artistic activities in a breathtaking natural and architectural setting give Altos de Chavon its unique ability to stimulate creativity and cultural interchange. A walk down the cobblestone paths of Altos de Chavon reveals at every turn architectural remains of another era. The village has an amphitheater for open-air concerts and a small church, St. Stanislaus, which was consecrated by Pope John Paul II and contains the ashes of Poland’s patron saint. There are also several shops, an art gallery, handicraft stores, a disco tech and exclusive restaurants. Some of the sites are linked to the famous resort, Casa de Campo. Afterwards, visit Cuevas de las Maravillas (caves of wonders). The cave's 240-metre footpath takes tourists to a majestic journey 25 feet underground, where stalagmites and stalactites appear like the notes of an orchestra. This cave boasts a collection of approximately 500 paintings by the inhabitants that lived in the island at the time of the arrival of Columbus. Transfer back to the port with a short stop at a souvenir shop.
