Owner description: Sinistra, the new place of Fado in Sintra. Great location, just two minutes away from the train station and behind the former City Hall. Different from the Fado Houses in the capital, Lisbon. A brand New Generation of musicians and Fado Singers - the so called "Fadistas". They are bringing us brightness and tradition at the same time! Only on Friday and Saturday! Come and visit us!
Useful Information: Bathroom facilities, Stairs / elevator, Food available for purchase

Sinistra is a charming suburb of Lisbon, about 40 minutes by train or car. It has a royal palace which is a must see! The painted ceilings and tile work in the palace are wonderful. The views of the surrounding area of the palace are impressive.The town itself is charming, with winding roads. A nice break from the city.

We were greeted by an unknown man on the street who asked us if we where interested in Fado and food. Yes, yes we were... We went to the place and it was amazing, the food the decor but the most important part, the music. For any Fado fan outhere or someone who loves food and good music, a must go...!!!!

Our introduction to Fado at Sinistra was a wonderful experience. The talent on display was amazing. The staff/owners were very friendly and spent much time with us, telling us about the history and their vision for the association and facilities. Their passion was infectious. We recommend it as a "must" experience.
