Teatro La Caridad, Santa Clara

#3 of 14 in Things to do in Santa Clara
History and theater buffs won't want to miss Teatro La Caridad, a colonial provincial theater built in the late 19th century. Though it boasts an attractive, ornately carved neoclassical exterior, the building really comes into its own once you step inside. Head to the interior to see the semicircular auditorium's three gilded tiers and intricate marble statues. Look up to admire the opulent painted ceiling by prominent artist Camilo Zalaya.

  • This was an excellent 30 min visit for 1 CUC each. What a bargain as included a guide! Worth a visit as beautiful inside with lots of history.  more »
  • Not as nice as the one in Cienfuegos, but worth a visit if you are there and have the time (1 CUC). The entrance is through a side door, on the right.  more »
  • Very good guide tour
  • Absolutely beautiful! A must stop if you have time. The history and beauty are worth the time.
