Fodor's Expert Review Teatro Nacional Dona Maria II

Lisbon Theater

Dominating the northern side of the Rossio, this Palladian-style building finished in 1846 is one of the city's crowning glories. The six ionic columns draw your eye upward to a carving of Apollo singing to the Muses. In addition to theatrical performances, there are regular art exhibits that are usually well worth a look. English-language guided tours are held every Monday (advance booking is required).
