  • Imposing and Majestic Theater very well preserved. Entering seems to take a dip in the past and imagine a representation. Very nice

  • It's definitely inspired by Greek theaters, as very similar to their structure and is made from a natural slope of the land, and built with a horseshoe-shaped orchestra. Stairs now bare because there are only few exhibits, was made of marble. Very broad and foresaw several orders of places.
