Trip Planner: Caribbean / Dominican Republic / Santiago Province / Santiago de los Caballeros / Centro Leon
Aiming to preserve Dominican art and culture through educational programs, the Eduardo León Jimenes Foundation established Centro Leon in 2003 as a nonprofit institution and cultural center. The center encompasses three permanent exhibitions with the main focus on identity, habitability, and creativity in the Dominican Republic, and a variety of artistic workshops and learning courses, as well. Pay a visit to the center's auditorium, multipurpose lounges, media library, and Caribbean-menu cafeteria, and then go for a walk through the garden and enjoy the view of endemic plants and a collection of sculptures. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Santiago de los Caballeros holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Centro Leon and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

THE cultural center of Santiago. Created and operated by the private sector. Nice example of social involvement.
