Overview

Fado in Chiado is a live Fado show – an excellent way to discover culture and the city.Fado is Portuguese and was born in Lisbon. 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.

It has to be a winning combination! Our first experience of fado music, we loved it, the atmosphere in the caves enhanced it and the port was delicious! It's located just down below the Palacio da Bolsa, a very small entrance. Would return if in...More

Caves are interesting, you can discover the history on how it's made. You get to taste 2-3 different wines, depending on your ticket type. Overall, the experience is quite short, the introduction is simple.. wines are good. Some snacks next to wine would be appreciated....More
