The tour provided some interesting insights and highlighted aspects of the theatre that would otherwise have gone unnoticed.... More

This building is as elegant as any of the palaces of Europe. I would love to have seen a musical performance during our visit, but unfortunately nothing was scheduled.

The colon theater is worth stopping into just to look at, even if you dont go to a concert. They simpky dont make them like this anymore. As a jazz musician who plays in theatres around the world, this one is high on my list of favorites.

Every day another presentation, it could be music, dance, theater, opera, always entertaining and good quality. Even if you do not like the acts, visit anyway the place because it is nicely decorated with Spanish tiles, is like a little treasure!
