Overview

Worldwide you will encounter few museums that focus entirely on a single individual. Therefore, when you come across one you must surely know that you are looking at someone very special. Without doubt, Amália Rodrigues was one such person.

If you enjoy fado then a visit to the Fundação Amália Rodrigues Casa Museu will provide fascinating insights of the Lisbon home in which she lived for the last forty ears of her life – until she died in 1999 aged 79.

How fitting then that her home is preserved as a memorial in tribute to her half century on stage, on screen and in recording studios?

The place is crammed full of memorabilia of this iconic person, arguably Portugal’s most famous singer and artist of all time. From humble beginnings to major stardom, her beauty and charisma charmed her adoring fans across the world.

Some say that Fundação Amália Rodrigues Casa Museu could be haunted by her memories; you will have to check this for yourself. What we do known is that Amália placed fado as a musical genre on the world stage, and that the recognition of this is surely sufficient reason to visit her intriguing home.
