A classic opera theater, completely renewed. A jewell in town not to miss! If you like opera, ballet or concerts, check for the actual,programming upon arrival. Tickets are easily sold out.

We did the guided tour and it was amazing. I strongly recommend. I did the tour in Portuguese but they have Spanish (of course) and English available. You can do the Tour and go for lunch at the Mercado.

Do this on Sunday, when the town is quite and dead. Very low cost. All languages given tours. 1 hour. Take your instrument if you can, maybe your guide will allow you to play a few tunes.

We decided to see The Visit. The Theater is beautifully done and a good sample of Art Deco. the tickets are inexpensive (US$8 each). The company was excellent in a Very funny production. We have a wonderful time. People are very polite. If you speak Spanish this is a must in the city!!!
