I don't know if there are any truly authentic Fado places left, but this felt very close to it. Having started out evening at restaurant with a Fado singer who customers weren't listening to, I walked the streets of Alfama and luckily hit upon A...More

Castelo, Alfama & Mouraria
Explore narrow streets and alleyways, small cafes and,
of course, the internationally acclaimed Fado music.
The earth-shattering Great Earthquake of 1755
destroyed most of the city but the contiguous
neighborhoods of Mouraria, Castelo and Alfama remained
standing to this day. These neighborhoods represent
Lisbon at its historical best. The cool breeze of the
Tagus river will take you up the hills to the sound of
