Porto is full of vibrant events that reveal the most lively side of the city. One example is the Caixa Ribeira festival, not to mention the numerous summer festivals in northern Portugal, which brings to the Invicta, on the 12th and 13th of June 2015, some of the most famous Fado singers, but also Fado's new generation of talents.

This event takes place in Oporto city's unlikely spaces, in Ribeira. There is a total of ten stages that will host more than 40 singers, for two days: Palácio da Bolsa in the Salão Árabe and Pátio das Nações, Ferreira Borges Market in Hard Club 1 and 2, Palco Caixa, Church of São Francisco, Fado à Janela (Fado by the window - Cais da Estiva), Boat in the Douro, Cave in the Estiva Pier and former Board Parish of São Nicolau.

With the Douro as backdrop, an idyllic setting is created for a unique poster, which will bring together the best and most current Fado names, with special attention to the interpreters of the North of the country. Names like Carminho, Katia Guerreiro, Camané, Gisela João António Pinto Basto, among many others, will go through these unusual stages and will surprise you.

If you will be at Porto, don't miss this event of cultural expression of the Portuguese identity. Learn which sites you must visit during your stay and let yourself be dazzled by this city that, every time you visit it, you will leave with reasons to come back again and again.
