#38 of 421 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.

  • High-rise balconies, lovingly restored. Neoklassistisches building, national theatre of Colombia. Inaugurated in 1892 to the 400-year celebration of the discovery of America.

  • Go see a concert at the Colon theater to its decoration and its programming. The historical places will immerse you in an atmosphere of velvet and music will transport you in time. Don't forget to taste the local drink served on the porch by traders during the intermission.

  • More than a stage is a work of colonial art where you can enjoy a lyrical concert or perhaps a zarzuela. This theatre is surrounded by several colonial buildings that are part of the historical heritage of the capital city of Colombia, Bogota Capital District.

  • Absolutely amazing and most beautiful theater in Bogotá. I wasn't expecting to be impressed by an opera house in Bogotá and boy was I wrong!! Is absolutely impressive on the inside. I was more surprised to know that it stands among the 8 most beautiful opera houses in the world! A must see when in Bogotá!!!
  • Refurbishment performed on it was worth every single penny. Is a beautiful place
  • Wonderful iconic place. The theater is totally worth visiting. Located in front of the San Carlos Palace, is one of the most beautiful streets of La Candelaria Neighborhood. The theater is 125 years old, and it has been recently renovated to all of its classic splendor. It usually has a broad program of performances, you can buy tickets on line. When visiting Bogota, this is a Must.
  • Great place to watch teathre and concerts. The place is locate in the center of the capital and it was recently remodeled. Very nice one!
  • Bautiful teather. If you go to Bogota you must visit it!
