Description

Fado music is a form of Portuguese singing that is often associated with pubs, cafés and restaurants. Fado can be traced to the 1820s in Lisbon, Portugal, but probably has much earlier origins. This unique genre is generally known for how expressive in nature it is, as well as being profoundly melancholic and it has a special magic.

Discover this recently elected Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO on our tour around typical places where musicians and Fadistas have earned their living for decades and continue to do so today. This tour is really authentic, mainly because of that a Fadista will accompany the tour and will sing in alleys, squares, and local taverns which have played an important part of Fado’s history.

This tour ends in one of Alfama’s traditional Fado houses, where you can taste traditional Portuguese soup called Caldo Verde and a spicy sausage called chouriço. So don't hesitate and join us on this tour around Mouraria and Alfama.
