  • The House where she lived for four decades the largest Portuguese singer of all time: Amália Rodrigues. The House is furnished, decorated with her goals. You can see some of her jewels and dresses. As the visitor is guided you can relish in stories told about this great singer. We back of the House it is possible to visit the garden, a bucolic and pleasant place.

Where to stay in Lisbon

Check into one of Lisbon's grand city center hotels to position yourself well to explore the central historical districts on foot. To avoid the potentially high prices of some of the Old Town's central upscale hotels, try staying in a hostel instead. While some hostels have an upper age limit for their guests, they're affordable and oftentimes offer access to attractions on par with or better than bigger hotels. In the upper town, opt for one of the family-run bed and breakfasts, which provide affordable rooms and, as the name would suggest, include a meal as well.
