Its stage has hosted most of the great theatre companies of the world which have visited Latin America, as well as famous musicians, artist and classical music orchestras. A century after being built, the theatre is still very carefully preserved.
For this purpose, it has its own workshop of national stonemasons, some of whom are direct descendents of the original masons who built it. This pride of Costa Rica has been added to by the annexing of the Plaza de la Cultura (Culture square) with its own art galleries and cultural conference halls. Its broad modern style provides an attractive contrast to the Classical features of the National Theatre.
