Museu do FadoLocated in the Alfama district, the world-class Museu do Fado details Portugal’s soulful national music with exhibits, audiovisuals, and more. Marvel at the photographic panel of Portuguese musicians dominating the entrance, then listen to music as you tour the museum, stopping at the second-floor auditorium to watch a documentary on the history of fado. There’s also a café tucked into the back of the building which hosts occasional performances, as well as a great gift store, where you can purchase souvenirs like a four-stringed cavaquinho.
