Basilica Catedral Nuestra Senora de la Altagracia, Higuey

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 different Basilica with a spectacular interior, its proportions called the attention as well as the stained glass windows. It can approach each other the image of the Virgin of Altagracia, is like a canvas, behind a glass. Similar to when you go to Santiago and you can embrace the Holy.

  • A very nice Church new Church. Then we were in the ancient Church, 500-year-old church is very tiny and very poor, but very authentic to me personally I liked it more than the new.
