Roberto Santiago visualized a spectacular shopping mall that included something for everyone and succeeded. You can finish a board meeting, go shopping, sample the different foods at the eateries to high-end restaurants and entertainment all in one venue. That is when Roberto Santiago moved his idea off the drawing board and turned it into a reality.

Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping located in Parnaiba, Brazil was completed in 1989. The mall has eleven state-of-the-art movie theaters with 3D capabilities for the movie enthusiasts. The shops and boutiques are next door and across the spacious walkway and brightly lit walkways. You can wear your new fitness gear at the fitness center and workout to relax.

Shopping for clothes, perusing the shops’ artwork for sale, and buying jewelry can work up an appetite. After you’ve stopped by the bank to replenish your funds, take a break from your shopping adventure, and make the Food Court your next stop. You can have ice cream, candy, popcorn or visit one of the eateries and high-end restaurants that will serve you a meal prepared by experienced chefs.

The Manaira Shopping Mall is home to Domus Hall located on the rooftop with state-of-the-art sound equipment and top-notch acoustics. This is a magnificent and spacious area where concerts from the local areas’ and international circuits can share their talent with more than 9,000 people. But Domus Hall can be separated into smaller lounges, or parlors for private affairs with cuisine to whet your tastebuds. Stop by and feast at the Espaço Gourmet, Waynes and the Capital Steakhouse.
