10 – Antigo Teatro Sete de Abril (Old Theater 7 de Abril)

Largo Padre Reinaldo Wist, 23 (Antiga Praça do Teatro), on the corner with Comendador Freitas (Antiga Praça do Teatro).

The Theater was constructed around 1830 and was active until 1845. It was home to storytelling and balls, where the public used to dance fandango to the sound of the viola and the rebeca (a kind of violin). Parties and tributes took place in this building during the Farroupilha Revolution.

The semidetached house displays traditional Portuguese-Brazilian architectonic features from the first stage, including spans of small and narrow openings and prevalence of full over empty. The eaves are short, on the edge-marking and seveira cunhal. The openings are arched with sliding windows. Partially modified, it now houses three residential units.

The building is protected by the State Historical and Artistic Heritage Institute (IPHAE) since 1986.
