Admission is 90 pesos, no credit cards or dollars accepted. If a cruise is in town, take the Spanish language tour, not the English one. Our guide, Victoria, spoke slowly and we understood her. Theatre tour is not very interesting and if you find something...More

A nineteen century jewel. A must go in Montevideo, overlooking the main Plaza, Independencua and a metrers from governent houses. Ideal complement when you walk trough Sarandi street and see all the historical buildings like Cabildo, main catedral etc a 3 hours walking trip.

A historical theatre that is very well maintained. There are guided tours or you can buy tickets for a ballet or show. It is closed to Montevideo's old city.

Went to see a play in one of the many spaces of this beautiful and well kept theater. Loved it! The installations are new, tickets easy to buy at the theater's window.
