Enjoy Lisbon: Caixa Alfama Festival!

On the 18th and 19th September, it will be held the 3rd edition of the Caixa Alfama Festival

The festival will include 9 different places  around Alfama and more of 40 famous artists, above all singers like Ana Moura, Cuca Roseta, Maria da Fé, António Chainho and Artur Batalha.

The event celebrates one of the most important symbols of the portuguese culture, “O fado”. This is a popular type of music inspired on a mix of feelings, hard to describe, which Portuguese summed up in one word: “Saudade”

Many portuguese poets tried to explain “Saudade” but without good results: only Portuguese can understand what is “Saudade” because it is in their blood.
