Music so full that it cannot be streamed

You can’t Shazam this kind of stuff and you can’t leave Lisbon without experiencing it: Fado.
And I say experiencing because Fado is a music you feel with your heart and soul — not something you
find in a Spotify’s playlist. Fado is considered a UNESCO World Heritage and it was born on the streets of
Alfama. It is characterized by the Portuguese word Saudade a feeling of loss, melancholy and longing for
something that almost was but never could be. It will pull at your heart strings, just like the musicians
pull at the 12 strings of the Portuguese guitar.

Tour includes

  • Duration: Evening (3/4 hours)
  • Typical portuguese meal
  • A walk through the neighborhood of Alfama

  • Drink and petiscos (portuguese finger food) at the Fado house, where intermittent sets are played
