About
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.

Altos de chavon not worth it
Mar 2021 • Family
It’s a fake I tried going to altos de chavon and you can only go by a tour guide and trust me they are going to charge you it’s not worth it Dominican Republic has many more places to visit but they want you to go to Casa de campo which is a resort with high end restaurants and altos de chavon …..👎

wish I was still there; takes my breath away just thinking about it - immaculate professional friendly and accommodating; always greeted with a smile - rooms fully supplied. Jabnia Guerrero amazing wedding planner concierge, Miguel Gonzalez - pleasant, professional so welcoming… it was a place you never wanted to leave. want to thank and mention Melfis Manzanillo front desk, Emmanuel taking care of luggage and transportation and Melvin, mixing the best Coco Chanel! With my whole heart and soul I want to go back to Casa de Campo. Servers at restaurants knew our names and treated us like royalty; they were genuinely happy to have us as their guests. The entire staff, every last one of them were great - especially Domingo and Junior felt like they were our friends. If you saw the photos, you would know exactly what I mean.. too much to say in a little paragraph.

The trip to Altos de Chavon was a little longer than we wanted but it was worth it !!
The historical church is beautiful and the museum shows many items during that era .
There is a few local vendors and a chance to get your pic taken with Coca Cola the donkey.We ate at a restaurant there and it was yummy but the views are breathtaking and worth the trip there

Restaurants were great and the grounds were amazing to explore. It rained a little so we were limited but we got to see it.

Closed because of covid
Apr 2021 • Couples
This was my first time to La Romana in DR, and was so excited to go back to Altos de Chavon. That being said, we abruptly found out by the resort we were staying at, that they are fully closed due to covid, and only the guests staying at their resort can access it. I even tried contacting the resort for a day pass or a one night fee, but at $745, it was a no no. Very disappointing as it says "open" on Google, and still can't enter this beautiful site...
