La mayoría de la población es católica-romana y otras derivaciones del cristianismo. Es por esto que las iglesias dominicanas juegan un papel importante en la cultura e historia del país, desde los días del colonialismo español. Descubre la iglesia más importante del país en la Ciudad Colonial: La Catedral Primada de América, la iglesia más antigua de Las Américas, donde se llevan a cabo actos y fiestas nacionales. La Ciudad Colonial está llena de otros lugares religiosos impresionantes a los que se puede llegar caminando, como la iglesia de Nuestra Señora de Las Mercedes, una de las dos representaciones de la patrona del país. Cada 21 de enero los dominicanos hacen peregrinaciones a Higüey, en concreto hacia la Basílica Catedral de Nuestra Señora de La Altagracia, el templo más importante, dedicado a la patrona del país, la Virgen de La Altagracia. Esta visita muchas veces se encuentra incluida en tours desde Punta Cana. Lejos de los lugares más frecuentados vale la pena visitar el Santo Cerro y su iglesia, el tercer lugar más sagrado del país, justo en las afueras de La Vega, donde los dominicanos peregrinan el 24 de septiembre, día de la Señora de las Mercedes.

Para asegurar la entrada a estas iglesias debes vestirte de manera adecuada.

República Dominicana

Las iglesias son un símbolo de la fe dominicana, revelando siglos de historia y arquitectura.

Es el edificio más antiguo de Santa Bárbara de Samaná y patrimonio cultural, esta iglesia de madera del siglo XVIII fue construida por afroamericanos liberados. Hasta el día de hoy, La Churcha practica la fe episcopal metodista africana, y sus asistentes son descendientes de afroamericanos.
El Museo La Altagracia exhibe una impresionante colección de pinturas y joyas de oro que van desde el siglo XVII hasta el XX. También cuenta la historia religiosa y cultural de República Dominicana y su devoción a la Virgen de La Altagracia.
Higüey, Punta Cana
Ubicado justo después de la zona del muelle principal, este llamativo edificio de madera es el primer sitio religioso de Bayahíbe, consagrado en 1925. Cuenta con espectaculares vistas al mar y fue construido completamente de madera procedente de la Florida.
La Romana
Considerada la primera Iglesia Católica del Nuevo Mundo, este edificio colonial de ladrillo y piedra se encuentra en un hermoso jardín. Pasea por su interior y siente la brisa constante del cercano Atlántico que fluye a través de este sitio espiritual.

📍 Playa de los Muertos
Located on the north coast, directly off the highway in Cabrera, this light blond-sand beach is not what you expect: a river flows so near, it gives the sand a soft, spongy texture, while the sea is a mixture of cool and warm water from one end to the other. It is an intriguing experience, but the shallow waters make it even more ideal for everyone. 📸:@moises.arias06
