O Teatro Amazonas é um dos mais importantes teatros do Brasil e o principal cartão postal da cidade de Manaus. Localizado no centro da cidade, no Largo de São Sebastião, foi inaugurado em 31 de dezembro de 1896. De estilo renascentista entorno de sua estrutura externa com os detalhes únicos na sua cúpula, tornou-se um dos monumentos mais conhecidos do Brasil e, consequentemente, o maior símbolo cultural da cidade de Manaus. É a expressão mais significativa da riqueza na cidade durante o Ciclo da Borracha, sendo tombado como Patrimônio Histórico Nacional em 1966. Em 2008, o teatro foi eleito uma das sete maravilhas brasileiras em dois concursos promovidos pela Revista Caras em parceria com o banco HSBC e outro pelo escritório de design Goff. #teatroamazonas #manaus #largodesaosebastiao #simboloculturaldemanaus #7maravilhasBra #patrimoniohistoriconacional #Brasil #visiteManaus #WTSVIAGENS #agenciadeturismoslz
