The Quito's Opera
Sucre National Theater4
Why locals love it
This is the oldest theater built in Quito in 1880s in the place where in Colonial times the Spaniards set the butcher's shops. This is the seat of the National Symphonic Orchestra, one of the prides of Ecuador. This was the scenario of the best music concerts and comedy plays performed for more than a century!
Why you should visit it
This Neo-Classical building is the best representative of this architectural style in town. The white façade contrasts with the golden muses of the Fine Arts located in the frontispiece. In the shell there is the portrait of Marietta de Veintimilla, the woman who dreamt it in 1877.
