Visit Teatro Colón
Buenos Aires, Argentina
Finally complete in 1908, this building took close to 20 years to complete and passed through the hands of three different architects. The building thus has very different influences, resulting in a uniquely artistic project, all with the goal of not being outdone by US industrialists. It’s excellent acoustic designs assisted in the theater’s outstanding record of performances as well as attracted some of the most talented performers in the world.
Why is it bucket list worthy?
It’s ranked the third best opera house in the world by National Geographic.
