This is the city's main fire station, hence its red colour. Its certainly one of the most impressive that I've ever seen. I think it was built in 1855 as there's a plaque on the wall commemerating its centenary in 1955. It is located on the southern side of Campo de Santana.

Address: Rua Visconde do Rio Branco
