The Amazon Opera House has an impressive arquiteture and art work. It shows the past glory of Manaus. In my opinion it is the most impressive manmade landmark in the whole city of Manaus. A place the you can not miss if you visit Manaus.

Lets face it,there isn't that much to see in Manaus but if you miss this -why go at all. Built by the rubber barons who were the super rich in their day, this grandiose building cost thousands of lives to build. It is astonishing that such a fine building could be built here so far from the sea. Marble came... More

I visited Teatro Amazonas with my wife and our two sons (26 & 20). The arquitecture of the building inside & out is amazing. We took the last english-speaking tour at 4 p.m....unfortunately our guide did not have neither people nor professional skills.

This is one of the key reasons why tourists come here... other than the Amazon River/Jungle. Be sure to arrange a guided visit.

Fueled by vast fortunes made from the rubber boom at the end of the 19th century, this edifice was completed in 1896 to give the money-aristocracy a place to see and be seen. Its style is anywhere between neo-classical and grandiose sugar bakery. Used to light their cigars with $100 notes, the added costs of importing all building materials from... More
