This theater is a quite small theater but is very beautiful with many golden and wood work, if you have the change go there a concert or a play, it gets very intimate ambiance.

If you enjoy the theatre or just want to see a bit more of old Faro don't miss a chance to see a production in this little gem. It's like a time capsule; faded but so interesting!! Period must be circa 1890s ?

Went to a concert here. Tickets are cheap and we sat in a box. Very much the original theatre of its time. A shame they don't advertise well al events.
