The journey starts with a visit to San Pedro de Macoris, a city rich in culture and history. Upon arrival in San Pedro, visit the cigar factory Macorix, an internationally renowned cigar manufacturer, followed by a visit to the Cathedral of San Pedro, built in 1910 and home of the largest and most valuable collection of stained glass of the country.
Afterwards, re-board your air-conditioned transportation for a visit to the Malecon (Oceanside boardwalk) of San Pedro de Macorís, before heading back to La Romana to visit Altos de Chavon, a replica of a 16th century Mediterranean village. The village is a place of inspiration, learning and artistic expression. 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, architecture reminiscent of another era. The village has an amphitheatre for open-air concerts, which was inaugurated by a performance of Frank Sinatra and is now used by famous national and international artists; and a small church, St. Stanislaus, finished in 1979 and consecrated by Pope John Paul II, which contains the ashes of Poland’s patron saint and statue from Krakow. There are also several shops, an art gallery, handicraft stores, a discotheque and exclusive restaurants, some of them linked to the famous resort, Casa de Campo.
