Full description
Take a break from the hotel and the beach to explore the strong Catholic heritage of the Dominican Republic. On this half-day guided tour, visit two ancient and venerable Catholic churches, and observe the day to day life in Higuey. Your first stop will be the basilica “Nuestra Señora de La Altagracia”, where you’ll be able to feel the powerful energy of the largest and most important church in the country.
Then, take a stroll through the main streets and observe the day-to-day activity of the city, like the cafeterias, shoe shiners, fruit stalls and their vendors. Visit the Saint Dionysus Church, constructed over 500 years ago, an important cultural asset for the Dominican Republic.
Finally, visit a local gift shop and take the opportunity to stock up on hand-made souvenirs and some traditional products.
