Visited here in years past as well as well as on this last trip to QRO after eating brunch across the street at the Fin De Siglo ... The place is beautiful and you can learn a lot about Mexican history ... as this was where the constitution was written. Good for a nice tour.

This where Emperor Maximillian was tried and convicted, and where the Mexican constitutional convention was held in 1917. The theater is restored, and for some reason, was sold, I am told, to private interests. Still there are free performances there of the Queretaro chamber orchestra (which was the one we attended).

The Teatro de la Republica is a famous spot, not because of the shows, acoustic or comfort of its seats, but because it was the site where the Mexican Constitution was signed on 1917. The place is well kept, but far from a couple of photo ops, if there's not a show in venue, there's no reason to visit beyond... More

it is a theater about a block from hotel plaza. Sometimes they have concerts. It is not easy to go in. Sometimes there are official ceremonies.

This small theatre is better known for its historic significance than for its qualities as auditorium. Nevertheless is a good and cozy place to listen music. It is one of the most elegant buildings in the city with a very sober decoration and a gravitas that only its historic relevance can confer.

We heard a sensational, young pianist play a series of Chopin pieces, with great excellence and emotion. Only drawback is that in May the building was uncomfortably hot.

From outside it doesn't look like much but the symbol is great: - first national song - decision to shoot Emperor Maximilien - signing of the constitution

If you can read spanish then there is plenty of info on display inside. The building itself is well preserved and lovely to look at. If you are in the Centro you should have a look round. The facade is also beautiful. It cost nothing to get in, but you did have to sign the visitor book and wait for... More
