Fodor's Review

On the northwest corner of Parque Vidal stands Santa Clara's principal theater, simple and linear on the outside, ornate and frescoed on the inside. The structure dates from 1885—tenor Enrico Caruso was among the early luminaries who performed here—and underwent a thorough restoration in 2009. Caridad means "charity" in Spanish, and proceeds in those early days went to fund projects for the poor. On the opposite side of the park is a statue of Marta Abreu, a 19th-century philanthropist who financed the theater's construction.
