Worth a visit outside and inside for the architectural details, an amazing ceiling. But the worst acoustics I have ever found for a musical venue, strident reverberations, annoying echoes. It should rather be a sports' arena, one of the greatest.

Parque das Nacoes
This neighborhood was built up at the end of the 1990s
mostly because of the Expo '98. The pavilions and
structures that once were the home of all the Expo's
attractions and exhibits are still culturally and
artistically significant. In Parque das Nações you'll
explore conference and concert pavilions, a shopping
center, trendy restaurants and an enjoyable cable car
ride you can't miss out on. On top of this, the
