Higuey City/Shopping Tour - Punta Cana

Surely you will be spending a wonderful vacation in the majestic hotel complexes on the spectacular beaches of Punta Cana, but obviously you will want to get to know the culture, folklore and essence of the Dominican people and get to know Salvaleón de Higuey. Higuey is the largest producing livestock city in the Dominican Republic and the closest to the stunning beach destination of Punta Cana, we can not miss the opportunity to meet it.

During our city tour and shopping in Higuey, a half-day cultural excursion, we will visit the cathedral of Nuestra Señora de la Altagracia, a modern Catholic sanctuary located in the city of Salvaleón de Higüey, in the East of the Dominican Republic. It is one of the busiest sanctuaries in the Caribbean and the largest cathedral in the Dominican Republic. The Basilica was built to replace an old sanctuary which dates from 1572, where the Virgin of La Altagracia appeared, protector and spiritual mother of the Dominican people. The Basilica began its construction in 1954 and lasted 17 years to complete it. Its splendor and elegant architecture will leave you breathless. We will explore the most relevant historical aspects of the recent history of La Altagracia, which covers the last 500 years..
