Overview

This theatre was designed in 1866 and built next to Guiniguada Ravine, very close to the sea and between the oldest districts in Las Palmas, Vegueta and Triana, a real hub. Money to build it was partially collected from islanders who had emigrated to Cuba. It was inaugurated in 1888 to obtain funds for those injured on board the Italian vessel "Sudamérica", which had been wrecked in an accident in the bay of Las Palmas. The theatre itself suffered a terrible fire in 1918, leaving only a part of the façade standing. The inside is decorated with paintings by Néstor de la Torre, and was for a long time a real symbol for the middle-class on Gran Canaria.
