San Sebastián Square is a must see, with its beautifully crafted monument commemorating the opening of the Amazon River to foreign trade in 1866. THen there is Teatro Amazonas, the Opera House, inaugurated on December 31, 1896, with the first performance occurring on January 7, 1897. It has has 700 seats and was constructed with bricks brought from Europe, French glass and Italian marble. Beautiful..

It was pouring rain the day we walked to the Old Square. It was very quiet and they did an amazing job decorating it was Christmas. If you are in the neighbour it looks like it could be a fun place to visit for a short while. It is also right outside the Opera House.

The square is in front of the Theater, so it offers an excellent view of the most famous sightseeing in the city. There are restaurants and bars with typical local food (I strongly recommend "Tambaqui de Banda") and, depending on the day of the week, there are concerts in the street. During the day, there are several museums and expositions in the buildings around the square. On Sundays, there is an important fair close to this place with local handicrafts and food. This is deffinitely an important place to visit in Manaus!

Quite surprised to find such a beautiful building in Manaus. We enjoyed a stroll to the Centro from the ship port (easy walk and quite safe). The surrounding area has a lovely park and many out door cafe's... Free wifi in park.

San Sebastián Square is a must see, with its beautifully crafted monument commemorating the opening of the Amazon River to foreign trade in 1866 backed by the equally impressive Opera House, the Teatro Amazonas. November 15, 1889 is inscribed on the statue commemorating the proclamation of Brazil as a Republic, along with the name of the governor at the time. The ‘squiggly’ black and white design on the paving was created by a Brazilian artist and produces something of an optical illusion, where the black and white squiggles appear vertical looking in one direction and horizontal looking 90 degrees off.
I believe every city tour includes the theater and square, and deservedly so.

The Espaco Cultural refers to the public square outside the theatre, which is cobbled in typical Portugese fashion with black and white stone chippings, and in the centre is a monument to the explorers. There are some stone benches, and it's quite a nice place to sit for a few minutes under the trees (ie. out of the sun). The Police are generally present in numbers (which tells you something about Manaus generally and the concern for the safety of tourists), so you still need to take care and preferably visit in a group.

This landmark is a must if you visit Manaus. At this location, in downtown Manaus, you have the Amazon Theater, the beautiful São Sebastião church and several small shops, bars and restaurants. A good time to visit is between 17:30 and 19:00. Take many pictures.

Manaus had its first financial climax during the rubber export boom.
During this period, Manaus became the Paris of the jungle. An amazing, well preserved and safe example is the area around the Amazon Theater (Opera House). There is a complex of historical buildings, and some of them became either cutural spaces or museums.
During the day is very crowded with locals and tourists. Good for regular tours.
At night, the main street "Eduardo Ribeiro" is quite safe, with some good bars and restaurants. It a good place to relax and wlk around. Talking to locals is a little hard (but you must try), but you´ll find many tourist relaxing, eating a pizza (SPLASH pizza place), so you can talk, share experiences and good tips.
