Excellent, impressive theater. Great architecture. Incredibly picturesque inside and out. I took countless photos wandering by morning, noon, and night. Rather than a formal tour, however, we visited during the annual Guanajuato International Film Festival. Although not particularly well organized, we managed to enter the...More

Nominal admission fee to walk thru the theatre. Wonderful architecture and history. Rehearsal while we were there which added a lot. Recommend

Beautiful historic theater - great place for a concert. Unfortunately street performers noise bleeds through and is very distracting.

It reminded me of being in Rome, it was a gorgeous building right in the heart of Guanajuato. The statues at the top of the building were stunning and the overall appearance was simply majestic. Located around the main Jardin, it’s impossible to miss if...More

This building is truly splendid, not quite, of course, as the famed Bellas Artes in Mexico City, but interesting and with great history. The pity is that almost all beautiful South American theatres rarely have more than four or five performances a month, and that...More

This theater, still in use today, is an example example of Mexican theaters that you occasionally find in cultured centers built during the 1800s. This is beautifully maintained and some of the large historical signage is in English for a greater appreciation of what you’re...More

This theather is the main point of the city. So I will recommend to start your tour with a visit. The price is minimal and well worth the price.. Young children don’t pay entrance.

Attended with a local friend to a dance performance of dances of young performers from different regions in Mexico. The dancers were excellent. The music and costumes were vibrant! The dancers were very professional and talented.
