Ribeiro Conceição Theatre.

Ribeiro Conceição Theatre.
Located at Viscount Guedes Teixeira Avenue, Lamego. It was built in 1727 to function as Hospital of Mercy. In the 19th century it was abandoned and decay took over the whole space.
In 1886, the headquarter of Lamego Regiment was destroyed by a fire. It was settled the regiment would move to this building, reversing the decay of decades. However, in 1887 this building was also destroyed by a fire, remaining in ruins.
In 1924 the ruins were purchased by José Ribeiro Conceição, who rebuilt it as a theatre, keeping the original façade of 1727.
It was inaugurated in 1929 and its interior was inspired on the Scala of Milan. Theatre plays, opera, music concerts, ballet, circus and cinema, all these shows were held there, until if finally closed in 1989, going through some years of decay. Acquired by the municipality, it was restored between 1993 and 2008, when it was reopened for the above mentioned shows, except circus.
