    We were looking for albums of FADO and we find ourselves with this House for sale in numerous musical instruments and a very personalized and pleasant attention. Are we invited to participate a meeting of music and song in a very nice space that have opposite. Beautiful surprise ours when we listen to Ana Margarida put her captivating voice to the chords of the Portuguese guitar by Acácio Branquinho and the viola of fado by Antonio Reis. And we perceive and appreciate because "FADO is a Sung expression of a State of the soul..." Or how mention you the big! Amália Rodriguez "what we want is to feel fado. Because fado is not sung, it happens. Fado feels, is not understood or explained."

    Fado show of the casa of to guitarra is a quality unexpected for a tourist outing. The location is ideal, the beautiful store, and say the two guitarists and the wonderful and beautiful singer Ana Margarida which we have excited an hour during. Amalia has to behave themselves! A dozen titles, all more beautiful each other sing with fervor d a voice severe and majestic, with delicately of a Portuguese guitar and a classical guitar, room full of stone and impeccable acoustics. A small glass of port wine will be offered at intermission what take off still more majestically at the second part. Don't miss this visit which is in my view essential.

    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.

    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.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
