Sent by Estella, a postcrosser from the east coast of Spain. This postcard was sent and postmarked in Valencia, Spain.
This is from Wikipedia : The National Theatre of Costa Rica (Spanish: Teatro Nacional de Costa Rica) is the national theatre of Costa Rica; a theatre located in the central section of San José, Costa Rica. Construction began in 1891, and it opened to the public on October 21, 1897 with a performance of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe's Faust.
The National Theatre is the maximum representation of economical stability of the nation, in a period of time when coffee exports were a round success. The use of the theatre is limited to high quality performances, undergoing a very selective process prior to admission for performing. The building is considered the finest historical building in the capital and is known for its exquisite interior with lavish furnishings.
