An italian looking theater
One of the most impressive buildings in Cienfuegos is the Teatro Tomas Terry on the north end of Parque Marti. This theatre was built by the family of Tomas Terry, the former mayor of Cienfuegos, as a tribute to the man, following his death. A statue of Tomas Terry stands in the lobby. This Italian looking theatre was the creation of architect Lino Sanchez Marmol and was built in 1889.
Inaugurated in 1890, the theater has been wonderfully maintained. It has been declared a national monument, and stars such as Enrico Caruso, Sarah Bernhardt, and Ana Pavlova performed here.
The two story Teatro Tomas Terry has five arches on the ground level to mark each entrance, while the second level displays square window and a small central balcony. On the roof level, three arches frame gold murals, giving the theatre a distinct flare. The interior of the building, which can hold up to 950 people, contains wood carved seats and the ceiling is adorned with an exquisite painted ceiling.

Il Teatro Tomas Terry situato sul lato nord di Parque Jose Marti, è una bellissima struttura la cui facciata è guarnita da tre mosaici multicolori. Il Museo della Storia, che contiene le memorie militari locali che sono appartenute a coloro i quali hanno preso parte alle numerose battaglie per l'indipendenza del paese e per la libertà.
Il Teatro venne edificato nel 1886 secondo l´ultimo desiderio del disonesto proprietario della fabbrica Tomás Terry Adams, il quale raggiunse la ricchezza attraverso il commercio degli schiavi e piú tardi divenne Maggiore. È costruito in stile italiano e possiede un´impressionante auditorio a „U“ su tre piani con un enorme affresco. Le maschere di ceramica sul frontone triangolare della facciata provengono da Venezia e rappresentano le tre Grazie.
