Home to the Oaxaca Symphony Orchestra, this theater is one of a kind, it used to be a casino, and it's architecture is amazing. If you like classical music you should visit, free concerts by Oaxaca Symphony are on fridays at 8pm.

Built in the turn of the 19th to 20th century this theater has a parisian style. Inside is even more remarkable with a beautiful stairwell. Take a look inside.
