Conceived of by luthier Alfredo Teixeira, Casa da Guitarra was established in 2012 to promote  the plucked-string instruments of traditional Portuguese music.

The fado concerts were born spontaneously in 2013  when Porto musicians and an informal audience  gathered in the shop. Over the years it developed into the  intimate music and wine evenings that  we now host in our concert rooms.

With the cross-fertilization of experience between musicians, luthiers and music lovers, we hope not only to contribute to the preservation of our heritage, but also to the emergence of new ideas that will keep our heritage alive and interesting to younger generations.
