Fado is Portugal’s proud musical tradition. The often mournful melodies and lyrics of fado tell tragic stories of the sea and the hardships of life lived by the poor.

Fado is linked to the Portuguese word ‘saudade’, a hard to define word conjuring up the sense of loss and homesickness felt by sailors. The soulful songs can be accompanied by solo guitar, a string quartet or even a full orchestra.

It’s easy to experience the romance of fado while you’re in Lisbon. Combine dinner and a fado floorshow with folk dance and music at one of the city’s renowned fado restaurants.
