The Teatro Amazonas (opening hours: 9:00 to 17:00) is a symbol of the golden era of the Ciclo da Borracha, the rubber boom that propelled the economy of the state of Amazonas in the late 19th and early 20th century. Opened on 31 December 1896, the Teatro is the city’s leading cultural and architectural landmark and easily recognisable thanks to its dome, which is covered with 36,000 green, blue and yellow glazed ceramic and glass tiles, all of which were made in Alsace, France. For BRL10 (approximately €3.15) you can enjoy a guided tour of the theatre, and if you are lucky enough your visit might well coincide with an orchestra rehearsal or performance. Pick up a free programme at the ticket desk to find out what’s on. There is lots to see and do in Manaus city centre at night. The Largo de Sao Sebastiao, the area in which the Teatro Amazonas is situated, is a good option for eating, drinking and generally having a good time. One of its most popular spots is the Bar do Armando, a traditional Portuguese watering hole. If you’re in the area, make sure you sample some of the exotically flavoured ice-creams on offer, not to mention the local speciality tacacá, a soup made from manioc and tapioca and served with dried shrimps and jambu leaves.
