I saw Colon theatre as I was walking along avenue 9 de Julio on my way to the Obelisk. The beautiful building was built at the end of the 19th century and it is even more beautiful at night. It is a big opera with 2500 seats. I?ve heard it has great sound acoustic but I didn?t make it to see a performance inside because it?s under construction till 2010. You can visit the gift shop though.

Address: Libertad 621 y Toscanini 1168
Directions: You will see it on Avenida 9 de Julio but the entrance is at Libertad street
Phone: 4378 -7133
