Teatro Colon Bogota, Bogota

4.7
#33 of 244 in Things to do in Bogota
Don’t miss the majesty of Teatro Colon Bogota, Colombia’s national theater. The recognized National Monument, built in a colonial neoclassical style by Italian architect Pietro Cantini, is the oldest concert hall in the country, having been inaugurated in 1892. Those familiar with the Palais Garnier in Paris may notice that the auditorium resembles its Parisian counterpart, though at around half the size. Check the theater’s schedule to see what operas, plays, and musicals are showing, or take a tour of the building.

    On 5 August the Miss Alba Lucía Becerra does not allowed me to enter with my spouse and my daughter a guided arguing that there was no quota. Then came a few foreigners who sold them the ballot and will leave to enter. "This is the anchor that keeps our underdevelopment"

    El lugar es una maravilla. La ubicación difícil. La forma que está organizada la seguridad es absurdamente ineficiente y a mi juicio no genera seguridad real.

    This is a beautiful theater that has been recently restored and has good selection of opera, music concerts and other events throughout the year.

    Beautiful historical venue. Art is well appreciated in there. Amazing performances have seen that theatre. Highly recommended. There's also guided tours during weekdays.

Where to stay in Bogota

Many visitors to Bogota stay in La Candelaria, a colonial-era neighborhood in the city center where you can find plenty of decent hostels and mingle with tourists from around the globe. Staying in this area also puts you within walking distance of the city's major museums and best nightlife options. If you prefer to sleep in a quieter area and visit this busy district during the day, consider accommodations in the northern section of the city, which includes the upscale neighborhood Zona T.
