While we are disappointed that the COVID pandemic prevented us from holding this conference in Lisbon, we are happy to provide you with a virtual experience of Lisbon, our People and of our country’s rich cultural heritage.
Through a series of videos and recordings, you can stroll across the streets of Lisbon and get to know the routes of Fado and the routes of the poet Fernando Pessoa and José Saramago, our Nobel Prize in Literature.
Make a virtual visit to some of our best national museums, get to know the history of the Fado and the career of Amália, Fado most beloved singer. And because our music is not limited to Fado, take the time to know Cante, a musical expression considered today, like Fado, Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
We thank Turismo de Lisboa, the Museums of Lisbon and Casa do Cante, for responding positively to our request and for the wonderful contents made openly available. We highlight that the RTP Museum and the National Tile Museum prepared original videos especially for this event and for the Portuguese Presidency of the European Union 2021.
We hope this virtual tour will inspire you to visit Lisbon and have a real-world experience in the near future, after the pandemic has ended and our lives have returned to normal.
