Altos de Chavón

A replica of a 16th-century European town, complete with cobblestoned streets and terracotta masonry. Altos de Chavón was built in 1976 to be La Romana’s cultural center. With a magnificent view over the Chavón River, the Ciudad de los Artistas (City of Artists) is home to art studios, craft workshops, and influential galleries where locals and students practice ceramics, fashion, design, and other handicrafts.
