There is a certain genre of Portuguese music, melancholy songs sung to the accompaniment of strummed Portuguese guitar violas, that are known as fado. Every evening at six, this center organises a 50-minute long fado concert and pairs it with a glass of the finest local port. The center prides itself on allowing concerts only by the best of fado performers in the city and the country. Furthermore, the fado performed here of a different species than you might hear in other concerts around the country. It has a body and flavour unique to Coimbra. And even if you’re unable to actually attend a concert, visit at other times; there are always musician present with whom you may have a conversation. You can also check out the museum on the history of Fado in Portugal.

I'm really happy with your team. I don't understand Portuense but I could feel it. Obrigado, to make me so happy. I hope to meet again someday.
The small size of the venue makes it more intimate. Absolutely great fado presentation. I loved it!
I highly recommend you buy The Dinner Show very romantic the help was very kind and attentive. the music was amazing it felt very special because there is a very small number of people inside.
A must when visiting Coimbra !!!
