Real Fado

Authentic Fado at astonishing venues


Real Fado celebrates Fado – a traditional music genre of Portugal listed as Intangible Cultural Heritage by UNESCO. The name honors its home – Príncipe Real -, a neighborhood that combines romantic gardens with the most recent cuisine and fashion trends. We step out of the formal environment of fado houses to present an informal one-hour show and a pleasant pre-dinner program. Intimate and exclusive, these events are now part of the neighborhood’s life.

The heritage of Water and Fado meet in the underground tunnels of Lisbon.
The Águas Livres, which were once distributed through underground galleries, hidden underneath Lisbon’s streets, are now replaced by curious visitors who fearlessly walk through these mysterious trails of water and the most special sounds. This is a magical and unique experience.
