santa casa

During a weekend, the Alfama neighbourhood turns into a big, open-air, living stage to host the most important fado festival in Portugal, Santa Casa Alfama (aka Caixa Alfama). Local residents, tourists, fado aficionados, fadistas and musicians come together in the narrow streets and darl alleys of one of Lisbon’s oldest quarters. This series of photographs document the 2018 edition of the festival.
