Tram 28 brings you there nearby. For fado-lovers is this House, of course, an absolute must in their city trip to Lisbon; for the interested tourist (like me) can this be an interpretation on a day that you think: what we have not yet had? (although that question in this city not so obvious ...). Amalia Rodrigues was in the last century the biggest and most beloved fado singer of Portugal that gave concerts around the world. It has hair, as you can see in this House, determined. In this Casa Museu, she lived until her death in 1999 and the special thing about this House is that there still so everything is as if Mrs Rodrigues can come home any time. Under the direction of a nicely English speaking guide you in groups of not more than 6 people by fado shrine shown around. In the very spacious kitchen you imagine yourself back in the sixties, a big full House room with furniture and dressers as I still know of my grandma (but then a lot smaller), exhibited valuables, dazzling dresses and robes that the singer himself designed (!), pictures, lots of pictures and getting the permanent feeling you to raft at someone's home. .... Somewhere sounds gently fado music. Exceptionally, and the iconic status of the singer stressing, she is in one of the many tombs buried in the Pantheon (Santa Engracia) in the Alfamawijk. Each day there at her Tomb, in the middle of statesmen and generals, fresh flowers. Brought by a very old friend.........show original
