Altos de Chavon Artist Village

Built high above the banks of the Chavón River is Altos de Chavón, the dream project of Charles Bludhorn, President of the now defunct Gulf and Western Corporation. The village was designed by the renown Italian architect Roberto Copa, who, along with an army of local laborers, spent several years building a stunning replica of a sixteenth-century Mediterranean artist village on the cliffs above the Chavón River. This setting offers breathtaking views and is a working artist's community. A 5,000 seat Grecian-style outdoor amphitheater features stage productions and entertainment. Stroll along cobblestone streets to quaint shops, exclusive boutiques, art galleries, several fine restaurants, a discotheque and a regional archaeological museum with an impressive collection of Pre-Columbian artifacts found in the area and a Design School affiliated to Parsons School of Design in New York with a special Artists-in-Residence program.
