The grand theater is amazing! The acoustic is very good and the it is possible to see the show at every place. There is no parking and it is better to go by taxi or ubber.

My first opportunity to attend a performance - Handel’s Messiah. What a great performance in a lovely venue. Friendly staff, well organized and great facilities. If you have the time to attend a performance you must definitely do it!

Not much going on in the Palacio Das Artes, but the gift shop was excellent, with lovely crafts, particularly sculptures. Prices were reasonable, and there was a big selection.

This is the biggest and best equipped theater in BH. Problem with difficult parking in the area. Also, foyer is akward, very large but difficult to get something to drink or eat from the bar.
