Cool building and a good cafe
Mar 2021 • Solo
I’m staying near the Teatro Degollado and I walked past it a few times. This morning was quiet and cool and I stopped at the small cafe for breakfast. The server was very nice and polite, considering my terribly limited Spanish. The food was delicious. I recommend the chilaquiles rojo with an iced coffee. Sitting beside the old and beautiful architecture, feeling the breeze, watching couples and families and performers film and take pictures (it’s a very photogenic plaza and a lot of ppl were taking advantage of that) was a great way to start my day.

Beautiful theater in Historico Centro.

Last time in GDL I didn’t have a chance to go inside, but this time I did. This is a very beautiful and smallish theater. It would be a wonderful venue to see a concert. (I was during the day). All seats look like they have a great view. The tickets for an upcoming concert were between 150-250 pesos. I will definitely attend something here!

It’s so beautiful and looks best at night. The Teatro had a show on the Sunday I was there but I wasn’t able to go. The theater itself is stately and the architecture is amazing.

Gorgeous building in the historical center
Jan 2020
The beauty of Guadalajara's historical center, where Teatro Degollado is located, is that it's very compact and walkable. At all times there would be hoardes of people mulling around though, so it's almost impossible to take a photo without someone bombing it. To my surprise, just a couple of blocks away, several local youths had no idea where Teatro Degollado was located, even when I showed it to them on a map! Is ignorance that far spread?!

Amazing building
Jan 2020
I wish we had been in town long enough to hear a symphonic performance or another feature, but that was not the case. Still, as someone raised in a land where everything is relatively stoic and new, I couldn't resist admiring this perfect structure with its gorgeous, classic lines. The theatre is stunning with five or six layers of balconies. I imagine there have been many people impressed with performances here over the last millennia.

Love this place! The inside is a must see!
Nov 2019
Saw the Jalisco Orhestra and we loved it (will give them five stars too) Really inexpensive tickets for box seats. The place is full of history. I bought our tickets online in the US and it was a hassle trying to get them. They wont email so you can't print them out. You have to find a ticket master location in GDL (there are many) so they can release them to you. The Teatro doesnt have a "box office" so plan accordingly. The cafe next to it was a treat. Would love to go back again!
