I loved to visit this theater. Cheap prices and the best part is inside. You can forget everything inside watching the show. Great architecture, nice people and when you finish you can cross in front to the park. I liked santa clara. Good people and a lot of fun. :)

This beautiful theater stands in the only lovely thing in Santa Clara, and that's the main square. The rest of the city looks awful and neglected. The theater reminds on bygone times, with a simple yet beautiful 19th century facade. Wanted to enter but it was closed to public at a time for some reason.

This beautiful old theater reminds me of the theater In San Jose which was built to be a smaller version of the Paris Opera House.

This theatre, funded by a famous Cuban singer is a work of art. We did not experience its acoustics, but is is an intimate theatre with lovely wood work and paintings. Located on the main square of Trinidad.

Not very many theatres across the world still retain the old 1800s charm. This is does. More so, if there is a live performance from school children. Quite like how theatres would be in the 19th century, except for the sound maybe. Loved it. Must visit.

Such a lovely place and so well designed to sympathetically fit in with the environment of the town. Airy and spacious and well suited to its setting. The story of the local dancer who broke through to become so successful and then returned to help others like him is inspirational.

Because I am an actress, my Cuban friends were thrilled to show me this beautiful historic theatre in Santa Clara. A guide took us inside ... no other visitors were there to disturb the awe that this magical, colonial building inspired. The fresco on the ceiling is outstanding and depicts Genius, History, Fame, Tragedy and Comedy. The balconies and raked... More

A beautiful evening in a beautiful venue! We took in a show here on our first night in Santa Clara....the theatre was magnificent; and the beauty was only outdone by the acoustics! An A-list choice for something to do while in Santa Clara!

It is very easy and cheap (entrance fee just 1 CUC) to have a look inside this wonderful old working theatre right in the centre of Santa Clara. Our guide spoke some English (certainly more than our Spanish) and was able to tell us that it was built in the late 19th century from the best quality materials available and... More
