Basilica Catedral Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia, Higuey
(4.3/5 based on 190+ reviews on the web)
View the modern architectural style of Basilica Catedral Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia, a cathedral dominated by a pattern of triangular shapes. The Roman catholic cathedral, which was completed in 1970, is almost completely built from concrete. Its nave features a towering ceiling that meets at a point, almost like a pyramid, while light pierces stained glass windows to illuminate the interior in soft colors. According to legend, the cathedral was built on the place where a little girl kept finding her portrait of Mother Mary, after repeatedly placing it by her bedside. A visit to Basilica Catedral Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Higuey travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

  • The Basilica has an extraordinary architecture, the story was conveyed us vividly by a competent Guide.

  • Great concrete juggernaut but worth to watch. Often offered by visiting the Dominican Republic. The Interior of the Cathedral very raw but beautiful "stained glass Windows"

  • The Cathedral, a modern monument that does not resemble our churches from the outside, a place of contemplation and very important for the Dominican. See to get an idea of the culture
