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.

Apparently it is closed for further renovation at this time. The outside is very attractive as are pictures of the inside. You cannot find a schedule of performances on the Internet.

this parking lot is safe, very inexpensive and right in the exact place you would like to begin a waling tour of the old city. On Saturday you are right next to the market/crafts. We did not go into the teatro so I can not review it directly.

This is were they have special preforming arts from dance to singing. We attended a performance of the National Dance. It was wonderful. This teatro has been remodeled and is in the old colonial part of town It feels like you are attending an off Broadway performance. Go if you can. Parking is available.

but was closed for restoration when we visited. Still worth a look and maybe it will be open soon. Located near Plaza Bolivar.
