Theatro Municipal

The theater is a splendid piece of French-inspired, lavish neoclassical pomp. On either side of the ostentatious colonnaded façade are rotundas, surmounted by cupolas, watched over by the muses of poetry and music alongside an imperial eagle. The interior has Carrara-marble columns, crystal chandeliers and gilt ceilings fronted by a sweeping staircase.
