Edifício do Majestic Café

More than a cafe, the Majestic symbolizes an important part of the city's history. It was inaugurated on the 17th of December 1921, with the name of Elite. In spite of the furor of the inauguration, this name did not last, changing from Elite to Majestic, name more appropriate to the spirit of the goers. Restored in the early 90s, it consists of a large rectangular room where, on both sides, there are bench seats, in engraved leather, in front of which are placed the tables and chairs. The plaster ceilings are meticulously crafted, the walls are mirrored, the floor is made of marble and an art gallery was created in the cellar. The Majestic continues to be a special place that preserves the memory of interminable talks, carried out by illustrious figures of the Portuguese culture.
