This is a pretty building and the whole square is quite pretty. We did not see a show, so I can't address that. Lots of little shops in the area. It is a nice little photo opp while walking through the city.

This is truly a beautiful building, and they have shows here often. There is also a nice restaurant inside. Wish we had been here for a show, but glad we were able to stop by to see the site!

Teatro Bolivar was built in 1933 and is a wonderful example of Neo-classical architecture. It sums up the styles that were sweeping the globe around that time. It has Arabic elements and tries to blend in with other buildings on the street. It has suffered from fires but is undergoing restoration. You can poke your head in for a look at the equally lavish interior. In its heyday it could hold 2400 people and hosted operas, ballets & concerts. Simon Bolivar was a famous Spaniard who fought fiercely for independence in the early 1800's.
