What to Expect
Learn about the origins of fado music on a 3-hour walking tour of the Lisbon neighborhoods where it originated. As you explore, you will be accompanied by a live fado singer and guide.
Experience the magic of Portuguese fado, a form of music listed by UNESCO as of “World Intangible Cultural Heritage.” An important part of everyday life in Lisbon, there is no better way to learn about Portuguese culture than through a close encounter with fado in the nation’s capital.
You will go to some typical fado houses, where fadistas have earned their living for decades. Wander the alleys and squares around Praca Martim Moniz, a multicultural part of Lisbon that is off the usual tourist route. Discover local taverns instrumental in the history of fado culture in the Mouraria district.
Then, stop for a delicious meal of caldo verde (a traditional Portuguese soup) and barbecued chouriço (spicy sausage), served with bread and wine in one of the authentic fado houses of Alfama.
