It was born in the 19th century taverns and it is a symbol of the Portuguese culture. Accompanied by the Portuguese guitar and sang both by male and female voices, Fado can be seen as the very own voice of the Portuguese people. Considered to be Historical World Heritage, port wine joined Fado, Immaterial World Heritage resulting in a unique program of excellence. The program includes a visit to the cellars and to its ancestral traditions, followed by a tasting of two port wines (White and Special Reserve) which are served while you enjoy a Fado performance that counts with a male voice and female voice accompanied traditionally by the guitar and viola. Come to listen and feel, today, the voice of the Portuguese soul. « less

It was adopted by Portuguese culture and is now a symbol of Portugal, with a strong tradition in the historic districts of Lisbon.The hour-long Fado in Chiado show features talented artists – a singer and two musicians (Portuguese guitar and classical guitar) – performing Fado and the music that makes it the national song. The live performances are accompanied by images of unique must-visit locations in Lisbon. It is said that Fado combines nostalgia (saudade), Portuguese pride, hope and conformism in a musical style epitomised by Amália Rodrigues. On account of these unique characteristics, Fado has now been declared part of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO.Fado in Chiado takes place daily* in the very centre of Lisbon. The hour-long show is the ideal suggestion for seeing live Fado and then taking advantage of the night to discover more of the city. « less
