In the late years of the 19th Century, Belém was experiencing the rubber boom and resented from not having an imposing opera house. So, inspired by the famous "Teatro ala Scala", in Milan (Italy), the local Government started, in 1869, the construction of its neoclassical opera house. After some years, the new "Theatro da Paz" opened its doors to the... More

This is a smaller version of the one in Manaus, which is the major famous in this region of Brazil. It was built during the rubber boom and have mixed styles in its construction.

Theatro da Paz was built during Belém rubber boom in the late 19th century. It is interesting enough from the outside, but really amazing inside. We particularly liked the straw chairs – very convenient in the searing Belém temperatures – and the primitive air-conditioning system that used dry ice containers under the chairs. They have regular guided visits that should... More

The theatre fell into disrepair but was restored in the 1960's with another major reformation occurring in the 1990's. We did a tour of the theatre with an English speaking guide. Our guide was excellent and the tour was... More

It is of course the opera house in Manaus that is better known, but this was built at more or less the same time and although on not quite such a grand scale is well worth a visit. There are frequent tours available (just turn up and ask when the next one is in English) which are virtually free. Although... More
