  • We fell in love with this shop in Porto. We were treated very nicely and had expert help in buying a beautiful Mandolin. Now that we are back in the states we are looking for a Mandolin teacher so we can learn to play this great instrument. It really is a great place to visit and learn about these locally made instruments.
  • The one-stop shop for guitar lovers, specially hand-crafted classic portuguese guitars
  • You'll not find a cheap bargain here, but the choice of local instruments and the friendly welcome make up for that. Grab any guitarra you want and strum away. Impromptu jam sessions do not seem uncommon.
  • To organise an evening touching fado performance live from intermezzato a great shot of the Harbour to try
