I stumbled across this place by accident on a Sunday morning, and I am so glad I did. I knew about Amalia before the visit and walking around the place gives you a real feel for the lady. The museum is Amalia's house which has been preserved since her death. There are stunning pictures and displays of her clothes and... More

We were staying in the Amalia Rodrigues Suite at Hotel Aviz, and had never heard of her, so decided to visit this foundation. It was our best experience of Lisbon. Estrela worked for Amalia for forty years, and though there was only two of us, we were in there an hour and a half talking to her about her memories... More

My friend really wanted to visit the place. However I was quite impressed by yhe beauty and yet simplicity of the place. The guide spoke English and could answer our questions very well. The tour did not take long, mostly because it was just the two of us.

We got to the museum weary and footsore to be told it was closed for the lunch hour. When I expressed disappointment and asked for refreshment, we were shown through to the garden at the back of the house, and within a short space of time we were being looked after by a calm and attractive waitress, who sensibly suggested...

If you're a fan of fado, a visit to the the house where Amalia Rodrigues lived for the last 40 years of her life is a must. But even if you don't know anything about fado or Amalia, it's an interesting look at the inside of a Lisbon house. The entrance fee includes a personal guided tour of the house,... More

Even if you are not a fado lover, but are Amalia fan you will love this visit, the chance to connect with her personal objects, check her dresses and jewelry, visit some of the rooms inside the house, it was very emotional for me to see all this, it was a great experience.

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... More

This marvellous and unique place in Lisbon was the house where the portuguese Diva of Fado music, Amália Rodrigues, lived, from the summer of 1955 till the day of her death, 6th October 1999. Amalia was and still is the VOICE of PORTUGAL. She's beloved by her own people but also by foreigners from all over the world that are... More

Firstly ( when you are going up or down the Chiado area ), pay attention to the voice, coming from an old van selling Fado CDs. You will be thrilled by THAT voice - THE voice. The voice is so magic that did not fit in Fado only. Amalia has vast repertoire of all kinds of Portuguese folk songs, as... More
