    This amphitheatre has occasional shows featuring artists from the Malagasy charts, as well as regular gospel-music or church-choir concerts that set the crowd on fire. Tickets are generally very cheap, and the crowd predominantly local.

    The Alliance Française is housed in a magnificently restored art-deco-style building, formerly the Grande Bazaar, which is worth a look on its own. There are regular art exhibitions here, along with film screenings, concerts and shows.
