REVIEW

The Simón Bolívar Amphitheatre was built between 1902 and 1910 in the old Montealegre Street, today, Justo Sierra. This rectangular space is distributed in three naves, crowned by a proscenium. The vaults, columns, arches, doors, windows, cornices, and handrails were made with a neo-colonial style that perfectly harmonizes with the Old College of San Ildefonso. This cultural precinct harbors The Creation, the first mural made by the distinguished Mexican painter and muralist Diego Rivera. On 1922, Rivera began the mural in the Simón Bolívar Amphitheater with the help of Carlos Mérida, Jean Charlot, Amado de la Cueva, and Xavier Guerrero.
