Owner description: This gorgeous and majestic National Theater was built in the early 20th century, and still retains its elegant charm. Today, its stage hosts classical music, theater and dance performances—and they’re incredibly affordable. If you can’t make one of the performances, at least make time to check out the beautifully restored and preserved space.

“A petite jewel...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I recommend visiting the place for a play or music concert. It will take you back in time while enjoying art, architecture and music.

“One of these great theaters!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

If you can´t get a ticket to a performance try and get inside to have a look.
The theater is in the old part of the town so it can easily be part of your walking tour.

An elegant historic building. The gold interior reflects a bygone era. I think it's worth going inside.
