Central America’s oldest theater was built in the Renaissance style by French architect Daniel Beylard between 1911 and 1917, and remains the most visible, prestigious venue in the country for the presentation of national and international dance, music, and theatrical performances. The interior of the theater is stunningly beautiful, its Great Hall rich with maroon and gold details and a cupola--painted with a fresco in 1977—that keeps visitors craning their heads upward.
