Amalia Rodrigues was the biggest singer in Portugal. She was the queen of the fado, the style of singing which is sad and melancholy. She died in 1999. During her day, she was the queen of song of Portugal, and she knew the most important people of the country. She was the most international of the singing stars. Her home in the Barrio Alto is now a museum. It is typically Portuguese, and you can see her dresses and jewelry. What is interesting is what she collected from around the world, and the way she decorated her house, in an old style. It is crammed with her collections of knick-knacks, and one could say it is overcrowded.
