Oaxacan Orquestra & Circus in a great venue! I had never been to this venue before seeing this unique performance over the weekend. There are unobstructed views of the stage from just about every angle of the Theater, the sound is decent and the place really has a regal atmosphere .... super nice!

This 1300 people venue, opened one century ago, has been renewed to be fully functional for todays shows, very comfortables seats, great sound. Great view from every seat, and the experience with the artist is really close.

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Historico
The beating heart of the city lies within Centro Histórico, the vast expanse of historical buildings and monuments that are a must when exploring Mexico City. Places such as the Museo Biblioteca Palacio Postal, Casa de los Azulejos and Palacio de Bellas Artes are the perfect eye candy for anyone seeking to admire arts and architecture. Don't forget to visit the wide variety of markets and plazas where any vintage item, handicrafts and jewelry characteristic of each state in Mexico can be found on Sundays. Admire majestic views of the city from the Monumento a la Revolución and Torre Latinoamericana, and round out the experience with restaurants of all cuisines nearby.
