Full description
This tour will take you to a Fado house in Alfama or Bairro alto, depending of the day. You will be accompanied by a local expert guide that will explain to you the origins and chronology of Fado in a small stop before the entrance to the Fado house.

This tour is a true must see! Fado is a story about Portuguese history, in song. It expresses "saudades", which is an untranslatable term which looks something like 'longing', a nostalgia and sadness of being away. It is considered World Intangible Cultural Heritage.

Wander back in time to the discoveries, and enjoy a 2-hour show in the birthplace of Fado. Your expert guide will tell you everything you need to know about this music. Clear your agenda for tonight and come on a spiritual journey!
