Workers in this building say that people often mistake it for the Teatro Colón, which sits next-door, across the street. Opened in 1904 and designed as a Greek temple, it's easy to see why, and it is one of the most impressive buildings on Plaza Libertad. Though it's not technically open to the public, polite curious visitors will be allowed into the courtyard with its Doric colonnade and may be able to have a glimpse inside. The upstairs areas, which include a theater and activity center for the school's children, have beautiful fresco ceilings with Greek decoration.
