A Theatre/Opera has existed on this site since 1776: the first in wood replaced by a glorious building in the Italian style 1n 1826 which burnt down when the great curtain caught fire. The building here was built in 1882 and was declared an historic monument in 1993. So much for the history..
The facade is gorgeous with those lovely pink columns not to mention the windows and lamps. My only issue is that it's located in a dark, narrow street surrounded by souvenir selling shops. In many other cities this building would have pride of place with the Opera opening onto a grande place.
It's own site is here if you'd like to see more photos.
