Polo Barahona, Dominican Republic

Polo is a municipality of the Barahona Province in southwestern Dominican Republic, known for its green and high mountains and for growing very fine coffee*.

The small town of Polo is also known for having El Polo Magnético (the magnetic pole), an area on a mountain near the village. If a car is stopped at the right place, and put in neutral, the car seems to be rolling up the hill. This is type of optical illusion known as a gravity hill which is said to be caused by the shape of the slope and the surrounding landscape.
