The Best Fado Restaurants in Lisbon

It was classified as an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by Unesco in 2011. Much more than just a song. Fado is a musical manifestation of feeling Portuguese. It is always accompanied by the solemn and melancholy chords of the Portuguese guitar.

Don’t forget! Whenever the lights are dimmed in a Fado House, and someone says: “Silence! Fado is being sung.” It is not just a ritual that is being performed. We stay silent of respect for the singer because the singer is talking about love, longing, and loss.
