Teatro La Caridad, Santa Clara

4.7
#3 of 10 in Things to do in Santa Clara
History and theater buffs won't want to miss Teatro La Caridad, a colonial provincial theater built in the late 19th century. Though it boasts an attractive, ornately carved neoclassical exterior, the building really comes into its own once you step inside. Head to the interior to see the semicircular auditorium's three gilded tiers and intricate marble statues. Look up to admire the opulent painted ceiling by prominent artist Camilo Zalaya.

  • You can enter the visit to 1 CUC per person and take pictures as you want when we visited, there was a repetition of an afro-Cuban music and dance show to be played the same evening, we were invited to settle in a dressing room. It was magical!
