Fado Maior do Porto

fado maior do porto

Fado Maior do Porto is a typical tavern in Miragaia where authentic fado lives away from the tourist hustle and bustle. Here, you will enjoy an unprecedented encounter in Portugal between excellent representatives of the most popular Fado tradition and university student groups that preserve the student’s Fado, often known as Coimbra’s Fado.

The concerts take place at 7:00 pm and last one hour. We recommend that you arrive 10 to 15 minutes early. Tickets cost €21, but during the month of May, if you buy them online they cost just €12.60 with a glass of port wine included.

The show begins with Coimbra’s Fado, a style that links the popular with the erudite, created and cultivated by university students, reflecting youth, poetry, love, and longing.

Here, some of the best groups from Porto will share their songs and instrumentals with you.
