So glad we had this unique opportunity. They played one of the guitarist’s own compositions along with other traditional pieces. Very heartfelt and moving. Strongly recommend. Right next to Igreja Misericordia.

Do not leave Tavira without attending one of the performances at the Fado History Museum. It is an absolute must. The performance is short but absolutely enchanting. There were 2 small children there who could not take their eyes off the fingers of the guitarists,...More

A great insight and taste of Fado music - well worth a visit. Local artists who are obviously passionate about their music and keeping alive its traditions.
