Spent some time marvelling at one of the most beautiful buildings in San Jose. The artwork alone is worth the visit from corinthian marbel floors and pillars to the sculptures and statues, all pouring out into the square full of children feeding pigeons. We stayed for lunch, very nice and excellent value while people watching. Thee house specialty signature hot chocolate was delightful. Tour guide was veryvety informative and the fresco style painting on the cielings glorious.

It's really worth a visit. If you don't feel like walking in San Jose by yourself (yes, it did look kind of scary to me!) you should take a city tour -- the inside of the theatre is just beautiful, while the main facade is San Jose's best known symbol.
