“The Basilica in Higuey”
Reviewed 6 September 2013

Very interesting from a cultural point of view for a first hand experience of religion in the Dominican Republic. The basilica can be seen from miles around as the countryside is fairly flat.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed 30 January 2013

A must see, absolutly beautiful! If you are lucky as I was you might catch a Mass. The Bishop was there at the same time as me. The orignonal Church is still there it is old and full of history. Everyone was so friendly this is an experience you must see!

“the big time birthplace for the DOMINICAN VIRGING”
Reviewed 1 December 2012


in the eastern part of dominican republic is the basilica of higuey , where for the first time we saw the face of la altagracia which is the dominican virgin. the structure is a mass concrete architecture and it was conceved by a french architec, NAMED JEAN DU PIERRE , whose inspiration was the virgin s arms up making an arch over her head,,that s why you can see all these archs all over the place. from the outside is not exactly pretty,but inside is very nice. every 21st of january true belivers come from across the country and the caribbean to pay tribute to the dominican virgin.
