The Theatres of La Candelaria

Art on the wall of Teatro La Candelaria.

La Candelaria's theatres are more than places for plays: they're also social centers, refuges from the city, even art gallieries. Many are in handsome older, full of activity and atmosphere.

Two different theatre festivals are going on in Bogotá right now, with lots of events in La Candelaria.

Que recuerdos Mike, que recuerdos.
Your shots and comments about my city really have the power of taking me back to my youth and, all those places that I have in my memory. The TEATRO POPULAR is one of those memories.
