This beauty theatre opened its doors in 1846, due to the strongwill of Almeida Garrett, a portuguese dramaturge.
The place chosen for the implementation of the theatre was the old inquisition palace, the Estaus Palace. At the time it was named Almeida Garrett National Theatre.
In 1964, the theatre was victim of a destructive fire which only left the outside walls. The theatre was closed for 14 years during the time of the construction of the actual theatre.
On this theatre many portuguese artists played, initiated and ended their careers. It’s considered an important space of culture.
Since 2012 it’s considered National Monument.
