Main Pavilion of Adolpho Lisboa Market in Manaus, Brazil

Soon after the Amazon Basin rubber boom began in 1879, the population of Manaus swelled with European entrepreneurs eager to cash in on the high demand and prices of natural rubber. It quickly became apparent the city’s markets were inadequate and below Europe’s hygiene standards. In response, Mayor Adolpho Lisboa commissioned a municipal marketplace bearing his name. This main pavilion opened in 1883. Mercadão is listed by the National Historic Heritage of Brazil.
