Casa-Museu Amália Rodrigues
The great diva of fado, Amália Rodrigues, is undoubtedly one of the most iconic and beloved figures in Portuguese culture. Therefore, the house where she lived was transformed into a museum almost immediately after her death, in 1999. The refurbishment of the house was carried out by the Amália Rodrigues Foundation, in collaboration with the Museum of Costume in the organization and presentation of the pieces.
The former home of the singer, now House-Museum Amália Rodrigues, is a beautiful Lisbon like house, situated in the renowned street of São Bento. On the guided tour of about 30 minutes, the singer’s many admirers may know and enjoy the environment, spaces and objects that populated the artist’s life and that are living testimonies of her career and her personal experiences.

- The bedroom, on the top floor, is the most intimate and personal space, where there are objects exposed such as: perfumes, dresses, shawl, shoes and jewellery.
