Imagine what once was a military fortress became a magical cultural place in the shape of volcanoes. Efrain regions left this amazing place especially built for you. 5 complexes, a great view to the city, excellent acoustics, vigilance, low cost parking lot. How can people say there's no cultural activity in Guatemala?

From regular plays to ballet to concerts, there's pretty much always something to see here. The complex is amazingly huge and located right in the center of the city. The theater is, by far, the best in the whole city. Parking is huge and the premises are always maintained in a perfect manner and I personally consider them around the... More

Guatemala's National Theater is really a master piece, design by the great Maestro Efrain Recinos (1928-2011+). An architectural piece inspired by the Mayan culture but built and expressed in its unique design.

The National Theater of the Cultural Center is inspired by what was the Mayan culture. Without falling into the copismo, it is a true integration of landscape and iconology Mayanist within contemporary architecture. In other words, these "functional sculptures" are an example of true originality. Thus it could be said that nowhere is the influence of Greek culture repetitive, which... More
