"The TEATRO NACIONAL, built in..." National Theatre Tip by drolkar

National Theatre, San Josť: 5 reviews and 20 photos

Favorite thing: The TEATRO NACIONAL, built in the 1890s, is architecturally impressive. It hosts plays, operas, ballets and performances by the National Symphony Orchestra. Also worth visiting is the MERCADO CENTRAL, which offers goods ranging from live turkeys to leatherwork and some of the cheapest meals in town.

Fondest memory: Personally, I enjoyed people-watching in the PARQUE CENTRAL that is just in front of LA CATEDRAL (along Avenida 2).... When the weather is fine, everyone goes there to socialize and take in the sunshine!

Address: Avenida segunda entre Calle 3 y 5
