Fodor's Review

This cultural complex was built in the abandoned João Gava quarry and adjacent wooded lot. The quarry itself was converted into an amphitheater that can accommodate 60,000 people. The 2,400-seat Ópera de Arame (Wire Opera House), also on the grounds here, was constructed from tubular steel and wire mesh above a water–field quarry pit. National and international musical events have given this facility world renown.
