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.

    everything is in the "juice" which makes the charm of the theatre, our guide told us his story, he is still in service. Beware photos to pay

    To see lots of charm, a very photogenic place, namely the Cubans can attend shows for 10 pesos

    The theatre is right in the central square of Santa Clara, your visit is paid, but the value is small. It's really nice and can be photographed, but needs repairs, but still worth a visit. There's a small café in the output, quite nice with drinks at a good price.

    Nice to walk around this historic gem in the centre of Santa Clara… not much to see, but worth the 1CUC price tag.
