    You can sit and watch people from the square

    It's really beautiful, both inside and out. See as many shows as you can here and all around San Jose. It's one of the amazing parts of this city. There are ballets, operas, amazing plays, and art shows all the time. The local paper is a great source for these things.

    Teatro Nacional has daily tours, and there is a cafe inside.

    National Theater

    To me, the most beautiful building in San José. The National Theater, first opened in 1897, is important for not only its artistic treasures (the baroque architectonic style, following the model of the Paris Opera House; the decoration in the inside; the Italian paintings, ceiling frescos and sculptures, etc.) but also for their spectacles (the day I went there was a flamenco show). Attending the National Theater is the best way to get in touch with the cultural life in San José.

    Take a seat and watch the people. I found them where more interesting than the building. We did not enter it unfortunately.
