Without a doubt a Fado is a must see for people visiting Lisbon!
Fado is a music genre truly born within the soul of the Portuguese people. It is a story about Portuguese history, and whilst many different types of Fado exist they are all characterised by their mournful melodies and melancholic lyrics.
All of this is loosely expressed by the word ‘saudade’. Saudade expresses nostalgia and the idea of ‘longing’. Fado definitely makes you feel something when listening to it, and is definitely an experience that we highly recommend!
The unique cultural importance of Fado has earned it a rightful place on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
