On our walk around San Jose, we finally made it to where my wife wanted to see this whole time; The National Theater. This building has to be one of the prettiest building in all of San Jose. The outside looks like a lot of buildings in Europe with so many details and elegance. The entrance also made us feel as we were entering history. A must do while in San Jose!

You should pay this jewel a visit when in SJ. The decoration is beautiful and unique in its kind. From the outside it looks small , once inside, watch the roof paintings and parquet floor

This tour took about 45 minutes and we were able to see the beautiful National Theater in all its glory. The guide was informative and the tour worthwhile if you are looking to do something short but educational and cultural at the same time.

This is an enjoyable respite from the crowded shopping areas. The theater is beautiful and it's being maintained well - on the day we visited we saw one conservator working on a section of the wall upstairs. The cafe was pleasant - we enjoyed the drinks more than the food as it seems the crepes were pre-made not freshly made which was disappointing given the prices.

Only that it is a well preserved building however the Plaza area surrounding is again in very poor condition.
