Teatro Colon Bogota, Bogota

4.7
#33 of 245 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. Make your Bogota itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • located in one of the most beautiful districts of Bogotá, and certainly the most historic, La Candelaria, the Colón Theatre is located just in front of the House where once lived the Simón Bolivar. The Teatro Colón is beauty in art and architecture, its cultural agenda is very complete and international. Only competed by the Teatro Julio Mario Santodomingo

  • The most beautiful interpretation of our Colombian Andean music. The nocturnal group the SAC of the stadium. And my great favorite Amaretto assemble with their spectacular fox. The great wonder had already seen them in the Festival of the Colombian Hall

  • A building discovered while walking around the Bolívar square. I have not seen the inside but the beautiful façade suggests an interesting visit.

  • Great place to know about the art history of Colombia. Italian theater style. Beautiful frescos 🏛
  • Amazing! A must-see place! One of the mos Beautiful theaters in world for sure! Gastronomy and architecture fantastic
  • 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.
