In 1976, Dominican stonecutters, woodworkers, and iron-smiths combined their crafts to create the rich architectural landscape that would emerge as Altos de Chavon, a 16th century replica of a Mediterranean village perched high above the Chavon River.
Today this vibrant cultural village perched high above the Chavon River embodies half a millennium of the island’s finest tradition of crafts and art and is home to a famous Design School, accredited to the New York Parsons School of Design. The distant mountains of eastern Hispaniola merge with the sea to create the perfect setting for this celebration of the region’s past. A walk down the cobblestone paths of Altos de Chavon reveals, at every turn, architecture reminiscent of another era. Coral block and terra cotta buildings enfold craft workshops, artistsâ€™ Studios, Galleries, Shops, and Restaurants.
