A Trip to Downtown San Jose
The National Theatre sits on a large square in the downtown and was modeled on the Paris Opera House. The interior is magnificent and main lounge opulent as the pictures below will indicate.
The National Museum is located on a hill overlooking the central city and features historical exhibits, a lovely central courtyard, and a delightful butterfly garden.
Inside the central courtyard are a grouping of large multi-sized round stones. They date from the Pre-Columbian period and noone appears to know their significance. Do you have a guess?
I'm not quite sure why a national history museum would have a butterfly garden, but it does and it was well worth a visit.
