The Dom Pedro V Theatre is an impressive structure, in that it makes you forget that you are in China, rather than in Portugal. Originally constructed in 1860, the neo-Classical fašade and the columns of the portico make this particular theatre seem like something out of Principe Real in Lisbon rather than the Pearl River Delta. It was one of the first theatres in China and is inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List. The theatre is still used to showcase plays and theatrical performances, although I did not stay to see one of them.
