Casa Museu do Fado
Saudade : in performance and on display.
Inaugurated in 1998, this exhibition space entirely devoted to Fado and the Portuguese guitar is a mine of information for anyone interested in this unique and typically Lusitanian music. Its permanent exhibitions tell the story of Fado music and its main proponents and describe how its instruments have evolved, with individual examples on display.
A Reference Centre as well as a school open to both novices and seasoned players are some of the services on offer at the museum, which also hosts Fado performances at weekends in its restaurant.
