    The most beautiful building of centro Rio. Amazing details, but inside you can visit only if you participate to a tour (r$20) or buy tickets to an event.

    Since it is a centennial place, chairs are very outdated and small. The entire place is uncomfortable. But it worths some visit

    Best place in Rio. I love the arquitecture and everything in that place. If you come to Rio is a must go preferably during any opera, concert or symphonic orchestra events. Take the time to observe every detail in the theater, you will get amused.

    It is beautiful! It was built in the beginning of XX century, when cityhall was destroying tenements, poor people's houses and African American neighborhoods in order of enlarging the street. It has a lot of French influence. It has a nice tour inside. It worth a visit. #Historytour
