Needs a lot of TLC. Roof problems. Large stage surrounded by boxes in Spanish style. Was beautiful in its day. Use imagination-to image its grandeur.

You can just imagine being in there when a performance is on. Great place, it’s like going back in time. Worth a look.

Interesting old theatre that has a history of famous entertainers. Worth visiting - needs a tour guide for explanation of its history- a regular stop in Cienfuegos

We stopped at Cienfuegos during a Holiday cruise. You can tell that the city once had money, just by walking around town. It's the best existing example of 19th-century Spanish Enlightenment urban planning. That's a fancy way of saying it's a pedestrian friendly place with...More
