Restauradores - This large square commemorates the liberation of the country from 60 years of Spanish rule in 1640.
Bairro Alto - Dating back to the 16th century, it was traditionally the meeting place for artists and poets. A quiet street by day, by night it transforms into a neighbourhood of lively nightlife with all kinds of entertainment and, of course, fado houses.
Fado - Unassailable UNSECO World Heritage Site. Much more than songs, Fado is the pure expression of Lisbon's soul and Portuguese feelings and is always accompanied by venerable and melancholic chords on the Portuguese guitar. It can be heard in many restaurants and "tascas" of the old district of Lisbon.
