National theater

Built on part of the land that occupied the San José fort, the theater was finally inaugurated in 1978. This center is considered to be one of the most unique architectural works due to the integration between architecture and the visual arts.

The person in charge of the design and direction of the construction was the engineer, painter and sculptor Efraín Recinos.

An interesting fact was that the project had been started years before Efraín took control of it, and had to adapt its design to the foundations that had previously been constructed. Also when seen from the sides you can see the representation of a jaguar lying down looking at the horizon.
