Teatro Colon Bogota, Bogota

#33 of 561 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.

  • An elegant concert hall with old world style and charm. The acoustics were excellent and the prices for concert tickets very affordable. We heard the National Orchestra of Colombia, who were very good.
  • Good attention, they offer different kinds of events and they have multiple payment options. Tbh the place is not really comfy.
  • Beautiful theatre! Well worth seeing a production there.
  • One of the most beautiful theaters in Colombia. You can go to any of the events in it or do the guided tours
  • An awesome place to listen classical music, so beautiful.
