Lovely theater... we have seen the symphony here twice during our visit. Arrive early to get seats on the main floor since this is a very popular venue

Yes we loved the building but the real treat was Friday nite concert of renowned symphony orchestra of GTO. They were incredible. Who'd think to find such music in not so big city in middle of Mexico. But there they were. At least till early summer when they head out for European tour.

More than one would expect in city center of Zacatecas. An elegant theatre that was ahead of its times. The theatre is still used today. A must see.

Went to the opening night of the symphony. Excellent show. The building is a gorgeous place, a true opera house with balconies rising 4 levels. Great acoustics. Seats could be improved, a little hard on the backside after awhile. Regardless of the show, the place is worth a visit.. but i expect all shows here to be at least good...... More

After touring the beautiful Teatro Juarez this morning and listening to the symphony practice for awhile, we decided to buy tickets for this evening´s performance. We are very happy we did. We were surprised tickets were available, especially since they are only 100 pesos each. The concert was great, and the sound throughout the theater was phenomenal. Touring the theater... More

Check opening times for a start. Take the tour (only in Spanish). They say to pay more to take photos, but no one listens. Sit outside and watch the street performers. There is a fantastic silent clown. You are right near one of the main plazas so grab some food/drink.

The work that has gone into this building is amazing to say the least . My husband and I have walking g around here for past couple days and every corner you go around there's another beautiful building such as this. It is located directly in the Centro and well worth a trip to see.

The construction was started in 1872 based upon designed by architect Jose Noriega. The theatre follows the neoclassical stylings of eclecticism which was very popular within Mexico at the end of the 19th century. The theatre was inaugurated on 27 October 1903 by President Porfirio Diaz but the heyday was a few years later between 1907 until 1910. Since 1972... More

This theatre is one of Guanajuato's most classically beautiful landmarks, wonderfully preserved despite being over 100 years old, built between 1873 and 1903. The entrance fee to tour the building is not more than a couple dollars, and it's lovely to step foot inside the theatre to see the stately interior architecture. Our only lament was that there were no... More

This is a beautiful theatre and worth the 35 pesos entrance fee but access is restricted. You can access the seats by the aisle in the stalls, one section of the side seats in the stalls but neither of the circles or the balcony. Even the bar area is off bounds! Hardip
