The Teatro Juarez is considered to be one of the most beautiful theaters in all of Mexico. Since its inauguration by General Porfirio Diaz in 1903, it has been the center and venue for most of the important artistic events in the city of Guanajuato and the entire region.
The roof is crowned with eight large bronze statues representing the nine muses of Greek mythology: Caliope, Clio, Erato, Euterpe, Melpomene, Polyhymnia, Thalia, Terpsichore, and Urania.
Its portico is in Roman Doric style and in its interior there is a beautiful smoking lounge in Art Nouveau style.
Thanks to an ambitious remodeling project between municipal authorities and the Philips Mexicana Company, the Teatro Juarez and other historic buildings in the center of Guanajuato look more beautiful than ever, with special lighting that embellishes the facades and reduces the energy consumption of the town.
