About Us

Fado com História is a tourist attraction in the municipality and city of Tavira.

Located in the heart of the historic area of ​​the beautiful city of Tavira, right next to the Igreja da Misericórdia, is the Auditorium of 'Fado com História', which presents daily Fado shows.

It is an elegant place with a capacity for 40 people, equipped with a multimedia system and decoration alluding to the National Song which is an Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

In this space you can enjoy a 35-minute live show with Portuguese Guitar, Viola and Voice covering some of the most representative Fados, chosen from our vast repertoire, and suitable for the target audience. The show consists of a video presentation that illustrates some of the most emblematic moments and images of the national song followed by a live performance of Traditional Fado accompanied by explanations in several languages ​​about its content and ends with a wine tasting from the Port accompanied by folar and nuts from the Algarve. The total duration is 1 hour.

There is also a variety of 'merchandise' available at the site that the visitor can enjoy and purchase, as well as other informational material for consultation alluding to Fado and also some musical instruments.

A show of great musical quality that will delight all who visit us and who demand this type of entertainment in an accessible format that complements a cultural visit to the city of Tavira.

Through a protocol signed with the Misericórdia de Tavira, every day we present a special show at the Igreja da Misericórdia de Tavira, thus benefiting from a greater capacity and different acoustics in a stunning historic environment.

We were awarded the Tripadvisor Excellence award in 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019 and 2020 and we are considered the #1 Attraction in the Algarve, in the Shows category, on the same website.
