Discotheque Amália, on number 272 of Rua Áurea, is a Fado Music temple. The location of this record shop can be clearly identified by the loud Fado Music that is played at its doorstep and which can be heard throughout the whole street. Named after the Queen of Fado and renowned international artist, Amália Rodrigues it boasts one of the largest and most complete Fado Music collection known to man, featuring Mariza (our new Fado Queen), Carminho, Cuca Roseta and Carlos do Carmo just to name a few. So, when you are on your way back to the hotel, and the tears from hearing Fado don’t seem to want to stop you know now where to find that special music which made you think so much about life…
