  • We couldn't leave Lisbon without visiting the home of Amalia Rodriguez, the Queen of Fado, in the São Bento Street, crowded with antiques. €5 entry. Slippers of protection to protect carpets, carpets and parquets.Comme already reported in many reviews, nothing has changed, or almost, in each room a Museum, with many collections, especially in the large living room before her room, ceramic... and in a showcase, a multitude of medals/Awards: Commander of a Portuguese order... and also the prestigious French Legion of honor. Musical instruments, shoes and dresses on stage, everything is carefully stored, for almost 20 years. during the visit, during an hour, we hear recordings of his recitals. Portraits, sculptures and even a photo with her husband engineer, shortly before his death. They were beautiful, we shudder. Our guide we were well received, explained everything. TB so. I recommend

  • I loved to visit the House where lived the diva of Portuguese fado, Amália Rodrigues. The House is very well kept and with rich booty. Too bad you can't take pictures. The visit cost five euros, which seems a bit much too. The visitor is guided, the House Museum is located in the são Bento Street, very close to the Assembly of the Republic.

  • 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.
