Fado is the music that comes from within the Portuguese soul.
Accompanied by guitar, fado tells the story of the salt sea which unites all Portuguese people. The words of each fado sing the soul of this people, tormented by the longing of those who leave and the anguish of those who, in the port of Lisbon, await the arrival of boats that don't always return.
Fado was recently declared Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO
Some of Lisbon's most iconic fado houses are also restaurants.
In Bairro Alto you will find Café Luso, A Severa, Adega Machado, O Faia, O forcado, among others.
In the picturesque neighbourhood of Alfama, the Páteo de Alfama, Casa de Fado Marquês da Sé, or Clube de Fado are some of the most sought after venues.
The Fado tradition is also continued in the Bistrô4 restaurant at the PortoBay Liberdade hotel. See the programme on our website.
