Each February, in celebration of Carnival, Bonao features its own unique characters parading to the beat of the carnival drums on Sundays. Bonao carnival characters include the Santos de Palo, wooden representations of Catholic saints made by the artists who are grouped according to the saints they have created.
Extraordinary award-winning artists exhibit their sculptures in precious wood in the style of 16th century Spanish artists. Visits to the artists’ workshops can be arranged at the center. La Gran Parada, Duarte Highway Km 89.
