WALKING TOUR | Lisboa Musical by Peddy+ | Lisbon | 15€
November 22 @ 10:00 - 12:30€15
The image above is that of Madonna with a fado guitar. But you can’t really recognize her because, well, her face is ripped off (pun intended).
Fun historical fact:
This poster mysteriously popped up on Rua do Capelão, a historically significant street in the heart of Mouraria (the birthplace of fado), alongside a number of portraits and biographies of beloved classical Portuguese fado singers and performers, a little over a year ago, with face intact. It was tacky and out of place, to say the least. Fortunately, it took the locals an uncharacteristically short amount of time to retaliate – a mere three days and Madonna’s eye-patched face among Libon’s greats was just an unpleasant glitch in Mouraria’s collecvtive memory… Lisbon is an amazing town like that.
From the organizers:
“If you are already tired of traditional “tours” and crave totally “out of the box” circuits, then this is the right “tour” for you!
In this musical “tour”, we will start our trip in Chiado, near the statue of Fernando Pessoa.
Then, we will stop to listen to various types of Portuguese music ranging from the 13th century, Cantigas de Amigo, to the discovery of the Baroque, Cante Alentejano, Fado, and much more while we talk about history and visit some monuments.
Along the way we will visit some gems in Chiado, Largo do Carmo, Restauradores, Baixa, and Mouraria.”
Meeting point: Largo do Chiado.
Guide: Pedro David.
Approx Duration: 02:30.
Registration fee: 15€ per person (children up to 12 years old do not pay if accompanied by an adult).
