Theater
“One of the most beautiful theaters with a long-standing history in Lisbon. It offers a fantastic variety of performances, particularly in early September, where the theater’s doors will open for ‘Entrada Livre’, a special program that includes shows in all the rooms of the theater as well as music concerts on the theater’s balcony. An evening at Teatro Dona Maria II is a great way to experience one of the most artistic places in the city in a different and unique manner.”
