Due to the great migratory flows, the Dominican Republic currently counts with a great variety of creeds being a country which allows religious freedom.

The most practiced one is still Catholicism, since more than the 50% of the Dominican population practice this faith. It is followed by the Lutherans and the Atheists. Furthermore, you can also find religions such as Buddhism, Judaism, Islam or China’s Traditional Religion, among many others.

Although the Catholic religion began to lose weight among the population by the end of the 19th century due to the lack of funding and support programmes, the Dominicans still count with two important religious figures the Virgen de las Mercedes as patron of the country and the Virgen de la Altagracia as their protector.

All out, the religious freedom of the Dominican Republic has also allowed the enrichment of all the cultures living together in the island.
