Teatro de São João (São João Theatre) is a beautiful building located in the city centre. Its history dates to 1798 (opening date) and some believe that this theatre was a tribute to Mademoiselle Guitini, a beautiful singer that the city's governor son appreciated a lot. A major fire destroyed the theatre in April 1908, being later built again by Portuguese architect Marques da Silva. Nowadays Teatro de São João it's one the city's major buildings and it houses most important plays and cultural shows.
