Called in Welsh "Canolfan Mileniwm Cymru", this huge complex just a short walk from Cardiff Bay has become known as the Armadillo because of its strange shape. It was opened in two stages, the last of which was on 22 January, 2009. Inside there are three main theaters where you can see opera, ballet, dance, comedy and musicals. The largest room has a capacity of 1900 people, while the two smaller ones hold 350 and 250 respectively. And of course there are bars, restaurants and shops, including a small Welsh souvenir shop to the side of one of the entrances on the ground floor.
