Altos de Chavon

Altos de Chavon

You first stop will be at the famous Altos de Chavon village - a captivating, man-made architectural wonder. The town is a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village perched high above the Chavon 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 was hand-forged. Construction of the village began in 1976 and the inauguration celebrated in 1982 with the concert of Frank Sinatra at the amphitheater.
