Museu do Fado information
Fado (traditional Portuguese melancholic song) was born in the Alfama. Immerse yourself in its bittersweet symphonies at Museu do Fado. This engaging museum traces fado’s history from its working-class roots to international stardom.
The collection takes in discs, recordings, posters, a hall of fame and a re-created guitar workshop. Afterwards, pick up some fado of your own at the shop.
