The Teatro Juárez is a historical 19th century theater located in the Mexican city of Guanajuato. It was built from 1872 to 1903 from a design by architect José Noriega and by order of General Florencio Antillón. The building was completed by architect Antonio Rivas Mercado and engineer Alberto Malo, who implemented refurbishments that significantly changed the exterior and interior aspect.

The peak of its popularity was towards the end of the 19th century until the start of the Mexican Revolution, being an important center of artistic activity where the most famous artist of the time appeared.

The Teatro Juárez has been the main venue of the Festival Internacional Cervantino since 1972.

  • This theater puts most other theaters in the US (and the world) to shame. The facility is truly remarkable. I only managed to view it from the outside, but next time a performance takes place there...

  • Beautiful design, unique architecture and peaceful feeling when you are enjoying a good concert. The chairs are not really comfortable and in summer time could be a little hot since there is no air conditioning. Other than that you will enjoy being here.
  • This building is beautiful and worth the small fee to go in and do a self-tour. My only regret is that we weren't there long enough to see a show. This spot is also the meeting place for many activities.
