Finished in 1909, the Theatro Municipal was built along the lines of the Paris Opera. Today, it is home to the city's orchestra, opera and ballet ensembles. In neoclassical style, all in marble, granite and bronze, it is the most prestigious venue in the country for big performances. There is also a bar and restaurant, the famous and imposing Café do Teatro, decorated with Assyrian-style mosaics.
