Traditional Fado Dinner (Optional - Minimum 30 Guests Required)

A shawl, a Portuguese guitar, a voice and heartfelt emotion... This is the image that could describe Fado (meaning fate), a recognized symbol of Portugal and music of the world that is genuinely Portuguese. At its heart is sentiment, lost love, the longing for a departed one, everyday life and triumphs, the essence of life that provides endless inspiration.

They say that fado is engrained in the Portuguese soul and a symbol of Lisbon and the country. In 2011, the UNESCO granted Fado World Heritage status.

Transportation provided to/from the hotel.
