Majestic Café opened in Porto on December 19, 1921. As it was with other cafés of that time (such as Café Gerbeaud in Budapest), many thinkers, politicians, artists and members of high society met there to discuss important topics of the day. In 1999, the Portuguese farewell ceremony for Macau was held here. Macau had been under Portuguese control for 442 years before turning it over to China! There are many things that make Café Majestic a very special place.
