|The Coliseu do Porto is a theatre in Porto, Portugal. Coliseu do Porto is arguably one of the most relevant landmarks of Porto and a prestigious venue for music and cultural activities. Together with Batalha Cinema (Porto), the Coliseu is a very good example of Portuguese Art Deco in the city of Porto. It was built after the historical SalŃo Jardim Passos Manuel which was built in the early years of the XX century. The earliest sketches of the building are from the year 1911. However the building was officially declared built only in 1941.|
The, at the time, modern-looking building counted with the collaboration of several Portuguese and a Dutch architect. In 1939, however, Cassiano Branco takes the responsibility for the coordination of the whole project.
