Fodor's Expert Review Casa Museo General Gregorio Luperón

Puerto Plata House/Mansion/Villa
A long time in the making, this modest, wood-frame house is where Puerto Plata's famous son, General Gregorio Luperón, spent his last years. Known for his courage and patriotic love of his homeland, he led the Dominican revolution against Spain, ending the island's foreign occupation in 1865. The museum's mission is to expose the life and ideals of this national hero to visitors both foreign and domestic. It has been accomplished with quality cultural displays depicting the various stages of Luperón's life, enhanced with signage in both Spanish and English. The home is both a slice of 19th-century life and an emblem of the city's rich history.
