If you have a spare 20 minutes, its worth paying the pesos to go into this place and have a look around. It was for the hoi polloi, and shows it. A beautiful structure, considering when it was built.

We walked around this theater without a guide and loved to see the beauty of it. You can tell it was built a very long time ago and can appreciate the architecture.
