We’ve seen the beautiful theatre in Havana, but the Teatro Tomas Terry in Cienfuegos is so much more original, it’s been preserved beautifully & has stunning mosaics on the ceiling.
Located in the old section of Cienfuegos in the Parque Marti square is the stunning theater of Tomas Terry. Built in 1898 it’s in such perfect condition with original features everywhere you look. Apparently Tomas Terry gifted the theater to the town as a thank you for his very successful sugar cane business.
The mosaics on the ceiling were done by an artist from Madrid while the exterior was by an artist from Venice.just stunning.
You get to walk around the theater at your own pace as there is no guide. Talk the stairs to the next level to get an even better view of everything.
For $2 CUC each the Tomas Terry theatre is well worth a visit.
