 Fado de Barco

 12 March 2023



An unforgettable live Fado event with historical stories, accompanied by a Portuguese glass of wine, or port, paired with Portuguese tapas – this is an event not be missed.

You depart from the marina situated in Vila Real de Santo Antonio where you will sail for 3 hours on the River Guadiana, located between Portugal and Spain. A stunning waterway which oozes much history and beauty.




Unique Fado Experience on the Rio de Guadiana



A fantastic opportunity to experience and enjoy a unique live Fado event sailing on the River Guadiana. This unusual journey will create a memory that will never be forgotten. Take a seat and enjoy the music and singing that originates from deep within the Portuguese soul. Songs that tell of feelings, heartbreak, homesickness and nostalgia from a happiness that has disappeared forever.


A unique 3-hour Fado boat tour where you will sail off the mainland of Portugal and onto the River Guadiana. You will enjoy the beautiful Portuguese and Spanish landscapes in peace and where the Fado music takes you to ultimate pleasures.


The Fadista will enrapture you with his/her amazing powerful voice which will enable you to understand that Fado music comes from the heart and should never be lost. A wonderful time to dream away listening to the incredible masterful guitar accompaniment.


During the event you have the opportunity to meet the professional artists, to take unique photos for a lasting memory and you will also receive a nice Fado gift.


In 2011, Fado was declared a World Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO. A black shawl, a Portuguese guitar, a voice and a lot of feeling; this simple image depicts the Portuguese world of Fado music and is today a recognized symbol of Portugal.
