This is the place where the actual Mexican Constitution was signed and now a days it not only serves political meetings, but also conferences and music concerets. It is a neo classical construction with a European touch. It is not very big and it is located in downtown. If you see an event on going, don't hesitate to go inside... More

The theater itself is quite nice. It is hardly ever used. If your visit to Queretaro is partly to visit the shrines of Mexican Independence, this is a must see. Read ahead so that you can appreciate it.

This 150-year-old semi-colonial building stands on the corner of two side-streets just off one of Queretaro's main squares (jardin Zenea) and is one of the city's main theaters. Its position - on the crossing of two streets instead of a main square or wide avenue - is the first of the differences with most other theaters. The second difference is... More

In my last visit last week I noticed that the big plaques where they told the story of how in that theater a war council condemned to death by firing squad Emperor Maximillian had been removed. I ignore why.

I didn't get inside this Teather but you can see that is very peculiar Mexican Design outside the building. Nice place to check if you like historical art.

is beautiful, in this place we have a lot of history, but you must be sure the day when you visit is open, normally is open only when they have some events, but consult with some guide.

This structure, which is located a block north of the Jardin Zenea on Calle Juárez, dates back to the mid-19th century and was originally known as the Teatro Iturbide in honor of Mexico’s first and brief-tenured Emperor. In 1867, it served as the location for the trial of Maximilian (the second would-be Emperor) and his two senior generals who were... More

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).
