The house of Fado Maria Severa, is located right in the historic center of Evora. The atmosphere is very family friendly. Homeowners who want every customer feel at home. You can eat typical food from Alentejo, Alentejo wine to drink and some sweets too typical. This home offers guests a concert of Fado, the Portuguese national song, born in Lisbon, with a young and selected cast. Offers well-menus in Portuguese and English, two living rooms, one dining room and another used to bar. This last room is a representation of an old tavern, where fado was heard between glasses of wine and typical snacks. Come see this Fado House and indulge in good food to the sound of Fado.
