Join us; we’ll discover the most hidden corner of a mystifying Caribbean metropolis. Follow us as we unearth fascinating cultural treasures in the first city of the New World.We will visit the Higüey Basilica, the most important religious monument on the island. A distinct structure in the form of a Latin crux; walk through its gaudy bronze main entrance plated in 24 carat gold. Its interiors safeguard a painting portraying an image of the Virgin of Altagracia, the spiritual mother of the Dominican people, finished in gold and gemstones. Built in the fifteenth century, the edifice is 33.5 cm. long, and 45 cm. in height.We will hail to an indigenous settlement found to the East of the island, founded on the epoch Christopher Columbus first arrived on the island. Arcane traditions held by the inhabitants of Higüey are deeply-rooted in the Cross of Forgiveness sanctuary, located next to the church adjacent to the park. Strolling down Main Street’s narrow paths, we make our way to St. Dionysius church. Its concrete foothold has withstood the inclemency of the weather, and is sustained by a sober vaulted ceiling nave, comprising five archways of eye-catching beauty and sophisticated simplicity. Making our way across Hiigüey’s agricultural market, we will get a better appreciation for the everydayness of rural life, astray from the hustle and bustle of passerby traffic.While at the Cigar Museum we will go hand in hand with master craftsmen, learning the proper way of rolling a cigar. We will visit an amber and larimar museum, minerals that abound on the island.
