Fado of Coimbra

Live Show and Port of Honor

Make a Reservation

Description

As we walk through the medieval perimeter of the city, we will get to know about one of the most incredible traditions of Portugal: the Fado of Coimbra!

For many people who pass through Coimbra, more important than the Material Heritage constituted by the monuments and iconic buildings is the Intangible Heritage: the rituals and academic traditions, in a city which about 30% of the inhabitants are students!

Discover the importance of the “Song of Coimbra” during this pedestrian walk through the historic center, where we will discover that there are two types of Portuguese Fado and will visit enigmatic places such as houses where important poets and musicians lived while they were simple students of Coimbra. You will find out about the street serenades and the monumental serenades!

At the end of the guided tour you will also be able to watch a live Fado of Coimbra show, played by students and former students of the oldest University of the country, followed by some Port Wine tasting and a talk with these people that so many stories have to tell!
