For the last five years, the “Festival des Grottes” “Cave Festival” and tours have brought together thousands of visitors to Dondon. As a result, the town has registered some sort of a revival. Dondon is located right below the Citadel Laferrière. With spectacular views , encircled by huge mountains, Dondon is the ideal place for eco -tourism. Dondon's recorded history begins on September 11, ...1698 when this paradisiac portion of land was given to filibuster surgeon André Minguet . Its Mountains display sloping rocks that sometimes lean on each other in perfect harmony or disharmony. The complete order or disorder of those masses are tangible manifestations of major earth agitations and changes . And Moreau de Saint -Mery was right to say, " there is perhaps no place in the colony with a more picturesque site than this parish ."
