Long Description:

"The Royal Theater is located on the Grand-Place in Mons. This neoclassical building, erected between 1841 and 1843, rests on a ground floor with arcades.

This cultural center in Mons has undergone major renovations over the years. It now offers better acoustic quality and includes access for people with reduced mobility.
