  • Ranked # 193 of Rua São Bento is the headquarters of the Foundation Amalia Rodrigues and his House Museum. A visit to this House-Museum in my opinion is important even and perhaps especially for those unfamiliar with Amalia Rodrigues. Visiting your home it turns out the great importance of this magnificent artist has had and still has in Portuguese culture. Preserved in a showcase we will find all the honours which countries around the world have given this wonderful artist, and are really a lot. I believe that no other artist in the world has received so many. Here we can also find his clothes props and copies of his magnificent jewels. In my opinion, those who visit Lisbon would do well to find an hour to visit this fascinating Museum and learn about this wonderful artist who was and still is the highest expression of the Portuguese soul.

  • ... is fado singing me: these are the words of Amalia Rodrigues, whose name is inextricably linked to the musical genre for which Portugal is famous throughout the world. At Rua São Bento is the House where Amalia Rodrigues lived until his death. The visit is 5 € and is led by one of the ladies that if an initial approach can seem unwelcoming, during the visit proves rather friendly and willing to answer any question (I made the visit alone and in Portuguese, I guess there's also in other languages). Before entering the House, you need to wear shoe covers, which are provided at the time you purchase your ticket. The photos are prohibited. The House is beautiful, with all the original furniture, some of Bill fine. Very nice living room with piano and the tiles on the walls. In the large bedroom of Amalia you can also see her wardrobe with clothes that drew herself and couldn't be packed by her personal seamstress. There are some dresses and jewelry and even shoes (high heels). Many portraits of the great Portuguese fado singer, mostly of painters and great prominence to the awards he received in all parts of the world. You visit even less "noble" environments, like the bathroom and kitchen which gives access to a beautiful garden. I mean, you walk into the apartment of a "diva" from another era, certainly nice but not particularly Grand, if commensurate with the notoriety of her mistress. Amalia Rodrigues, who did not leave heirs since she had no children, is a much loved figure in Portugal although, after 1974, was accused of being the voice of Salazar's regime in the world and its image was a bit tarnished. Many years later intervened even Jose Saramago in defense of great fadista, which underwent a sort of rehabilitation.
