The Santa Casa Alfama takes place in the oldest neighborhood in Lisbon, full of magnificent architecture and overflowing with culture.

Miguel and Santo Estêvão, and recreational societies such as Boa União, Grupo Sportivo Adicence and Magalhães de Lima, and is located at the Museu do Fado, and it reaches the riverfront with the main stage, Santa Casa Alfama, and the windows of Largo S. Miguel.

After an edition dedicated to Amália Rodrigues, in the diva’s centenary year, the 9th edition of Santa Casa Alfama, from September 24th to 25th, paid homage to another great name in Fado and Portuguese music: Carlos do Carmo.

The cruise terminal thus hosted a video mapping projection about Carlos do Carmo, and an exhibition about the fado singer, creator of hits such as “Canoas do Tejo”, “Os Putos”, “Trem Desmantelado”, “Lisboa, Menina e Moça” and “Fado Anarda”, among others. It should be noted that all the artists who participated in the festival included at least 1 theme by Carlos do Carmo in their repertoires.
