Pateo de AlfamaPáteo de Alfama is a traditional court dating far back to early Lisbon.  Situated on São João da Praça street, that in conjunction with both Sé and São Pedro Streets, crosses the whole of Alfama, one of Lisbon's oldest neighbourhoods.  The court is formed by Murça Counts Palace's atrium, one of the buildings that withstood the 1755 earthquake, it is adjacent to "Cerca Velha", the first city wall, that is in effect, also one of  Páteo de Alfama's majestic interior walls.

Because it is within a private building, this part of "Cerva Velha" is well  conserved, therefore, when construction of Páteo de Alfama began, the City Museum Archaeology Department intervened to study the nature of "Cerca Velha's" foundations in this part of the city.  This study is documented in an exhibition that is open to the public inside of Páteo de Alfama.   Some of the archaeological peaces found during excavations are also included in the exhibition dating from century IIV to XVI d.c.

During 2007 the Palace underwent profound building improvements, and inside, a centre to promote Portuguese culture was born.  From the exhibition of handcrafts to the Folklore dances and sad sound of Fado, you'll be able to enjoy and taste Portugal's rich culture including our world famous cuisine mixed with true Portuguese heritage, all this and much more is available to you at the new Páteo de Alfama Restaurant.

A unique establishment, Páteo de Alfama is in effect a must see when visiting Lisbon, and invites you to come and taste Portugal!

Portugal's sound, has a name, it's name is "Fado", the most popular form of sung Portuguese folklore.  Born is Lisbon, it expanded throughout the country, and today, it is Portugal's internationally well know musical expression.  This popularity was achieved through superior voices that introduced this magical art abroad.  Poems and wonderful melody with heart felt sentiment that generations of "Fadistas" gave to this music, liberated Fado from the need to understand the meaning of it's words.


It is in this context, that Páteo de Alfama is proud to present a luxurious cast of performers, including Cidália Moreira, the artist with most performances in Portugal, and who's voice mirrors the true sadness that fado requires, as well as expressing the joyful soul needed during cheerful fados.

Maria Mendes, is a common face on Portuguese TV, boasting an important international career, that includes performing with the likes of Julien Clerc, Joe Dassin  or Charles Aznavour.  

Tânia Oleiro is considered to be a revelation of the new generation of Fado and Vânia Duarte is one of the 20 singers selected in a television competition with more than 30.000 competitors.

Ultimately, at Páteo de Alfama you'll witness the true meaning of "Fado", and understand why this art touches the hearts of millions worldwide. 

inally a show that offers an authentic vision into Portugal's regional folklore".

"From Tras-os-Montes to Ribatejo and Minho to the Beira's region, you'll witness Portugal's great folk traditions".

Portuguese Folklore is extremely varied because of the isolation that various regions had between them.  Whether it be because of bad ground access, or to poor communications due to the natural rugged terrain of the Portuguese territory, many regions were left untouched for many years, therefore, our folklore holds cultural influences left behind by cultures that once lived and conquered Portuguese lands.

Within this rich mixture of cultures, you'll find dances with autocnes, Celt and Roman influences, or even the assimilation of the French acculturation left by the renascence, in fact, you'll find a little of everything in Portugal's traditional folklore. This diversity gives our unique show a colourful environment that covers Portuguese regions as if a true image of distant lands were presented to you.  Come see traditional outfits, typical dances and listen to the rhythms of a once lost Portugal, that yet, today, continues to live it's rich heritage.

At Páteo de Alfama, you'll witness the magnificently coloured outfits from Minho and it's joyful dances and enjoy the "cortizen influences" of the "Estremenhas Dance".  Come feel the simplicity and coloured rhythm from the "People of Nazaré" and rejoice with the "Pauliteiros de Miranda" and the masculine "Fandango Ribatejano" performance!  All this presented to you in a seamless show filled with, dance, music, colour and above all, the true heart of Portuguese heritage!

The restaurante is situated on the first floor at the old Murça Count's Palace.  It's location is adjacent to "Cerca Velha" the roman - moure wall in Lisbon.  Here, in beautiful surroundings, next to a wall that once protected this city, you can dine on traditional hand-painted dishes from Alentejo set with true Minho embroidery.

The restaurant has smoking and non smoking areas in two distinct areas, ensuring that weather you smoke or not, you will enjoy your evening with us. 

And it is here, in total comfort that you can experience all the delicacies that only traditional Portuguese gourmet cuisine can offer.  From "Sopa da Pedra" (Stone Soup) to "Vieiras Gratinadas"(Roasted Scallops) to "Bacalhau com Natas" (Cod on Cream) and "Bacalhau com Broa" (Cod with Cornbread).  We also include in our menu, the real "Bife à Portuguesa" (Portuguese Steak), come try our "old style" Portuguese cuisine accompanied with a unique selection of the best Portuguese wines.  At Páteo the Alfama you are sure to taste the best that Portugal has to offer!
