Along the streets of Bairro Alto you’ll find one of Lisbon’s oldest fado houses, A Severa. Inaugurated in 1955, it has since become the favorite haunt of those who live for nostalgia. A Severa is a right place for true lovers of good Fado, a haven for feelings of emotion charged with pain and nostalgia.
It is in this welcoming atmosphere, with its typically Portuguese music and gastronomy, that all those who choose to visit get to know the essence of Lusitanian culture, endowed with feelings. Severa is the stage for local artists who, with their voice and soul, create an intimate atmosphere and share their passion for this art. In this way, those who find themselves in this environment are transported to another era, through their connection with the fado singer and everything that Fado conveys.
In the heart of Lisbon, this place is sought after by tourists who want to live the unique experience of tasting a typical dish of excellence, while being seduced by penetrating melodies. Considered an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by UNESCO, Fado has aroused interest ever since the huge voice of Carlos do Carmo and Amália Rodrigues, who internalized this tradition that is so dynamic even today in cultural tourism.
In every corner of the world, Portugal is associated with its enormous culture, which gives it more than enough reason to be visited by true art lovers. Nowadays, our fado singers, men and women, don’t let fado fall into oblivion and continue to spread their melodies through the streets. Although it has been reinvented, Fado marks the country’s culture and is one of the treasures it presents to the outside world.
Fado houses, such as A Severa, enhance the country’s tourist offerings and are sought out by thousands of people as a way of feeling what Fado conveys.
