You are a Private Investigator in charge of solving the mysterious disappearance - and possible murder - of Teresa do Carmo. She is a famous fado singer, known as one of the Seven Grand Wonders of Alfama. You do suspect foul play, a crime of passion. Teresa do Carmo had a bohemian reputation, and maybe one of her lovers did the bad deed.

Follow clues to trace the places where the “Fadista” was last seen and solve this mystery. Dive deep into Alfama’s neighbourhood and meet eccentric natives and tourists - everyone is a suspect! Along your journey, you will feel the peril, the excitement, and wonder as you traverse seven grand wonders that only exist in the heart of Lisbon.

The quest in itself was great, an intriguing story guiding you past some beautiful landmarks in Alfama. We lost some time because of the more gastronomical culture of Lisboa but it was time well spent and the outcome of the mystery was worth it.
