  • Beautiful building. Tour was good but mainly focused on art rather than the theatre and how productions are put together

  • Beautiful theater! Good place for taking photos

  • Worth to visit......A great place......But be sure you take the English tour if you are a tourist otherwise you would have to take the Portuguese tour(the guide will explain everything in Portuguese

  • Wonderful place to go!! Classic and beautiful :) Love it

  • We did an English tour, however the guid did NOT spoke English. Most confusing tour ever! The theatre is really nice though.
