Amazing construction, it was part of Luz train station. From one of the rooms we can see the rails and platforms. Now, it's like a concert hall and a big place for business events and even weeding parties. There's a small souvenir shop and a...More

Any concert here is a must see/watch - the place is very well designed. Good parking and easy to go by public transportation but since all concerts happen at night I suggest taxi/uber

Excellent music! Very good coffee shop! Easy to park as there is a parking lot! If you want to go by taxi there is a taxi stand right outside ! It is a pleasant experience if you like music and good coffee!

One of the greatest places in the world to listen to great orchestras and classic music. Unfurtunately, the neighborhood is awful, big sample of the third world misery, in contrast with the beauty of art.
