  Theatro da Paz
by NedHopkins

The 'Peace Theatre' was built in 1874 at the height of the rubber boom -- which also produced the famous Theatro Amazonas in Manaus, 900 miles up the river.

Belem's operahouse is less dramatic than Manaus's, but no less beautiful. Unlike that city's, nearly all the material in the building is of local origin. A big exception is the curtain, which was executed in and imported from Paris.

Address: Praca da Republica
Directions: In the center of the downtown area.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
