Definitely one of the most beautiful building in San Salvador. The design is splendid, and reminded me a lot of some buildings in Europe. The shows there are also very cheap, at most $7/ticket.

Designed by a French architect and constructed by a Salvadorian firm, this theatre was opened in 1917. This was remodelled in 1976 -78 period and has a mixed style with materials and furniture used from different countries. There is also a large water colour painting on the ceiling. The theatre was declared a national monument in 1979 and there are plenty of performances happening there.

We passed by this theater on our tour of Sal Salvador and immediately I saw its resemblance to the Paris Opera. Its evokes a parisian european style of architecture which made it stand out among the other buildings in the square .

I am amazed by how well the facade is maintained > I would have loved to go in but we had no time.

Well I did not actually get to go inside because the guard stop letting people in at 3:30 . We begged to go inside but he declined . We even offered to pay him extra he smiled and then his boss came and told us it was to late . Before we left he informed us that it was 1.00 admission and they close at 4:00. In fact I have notice that all places I visited close earlier than posted. From view of outside the building was well kept. A large gate surrounds the building and plenty of police and arm guards viable . This is across the street from The “La Liberta”.

if you can actuallly speak Spanish and go to see a play and/or concert to this theater, go and do yourself that favor. Warning though: foreigners should go by car/taxi and park on a parking which is off to the side of it but hard to find. Definitely go with a local. you can leave your car there and walk, there are usually policemen around. Plays are insanely cheap ($5 tops)

This theatre is the oldest in Central America. It was built in French Renaissance style. Today it is one of the few buildings renovated in the city centre. Its Great Hall and the Dome are indeed beautiful. Nowadays it still hosts concerts, theatre plays and even conferences.

This was good but the theatre in Santa Ana is a thousand times better in terms of everything. I went 3 times to find it closed each time until I went back again.

The National Theater still hosts some formal events, and in spite of the trouble getting there (parking spots are hard to find and the area, and if you park on the street, your car might be vandalized), once you enter it is in a state of semi-decay that is actually quite interesting. Red velvet carpets and courtains, golden embroidery and old furniture... If you are in the city and know about a show, get a cab and go there, it's worth the trouble to experience theater as it must have been in the middle of last century. Just be careful not to take the street cabs on your way back to the hotel.
