A great little place! Built as a synagogue in the 1300’s, converted to a Christian church, then abandoned until the current owners turned it into a music venue. This small venue is an intimate spot to listen to live music. They do serve food, but...More

Terrific Fado music in a small converted chapel. The musicians were amazing and their passion for the music infectious. We took the dinner option which we considered good value but you could also take a cheaper drink option. A fantastic night! Be sure to book...More
