Enjoyed learning g about Amalia...her modest roots and the 1950s home she created. My guide was fine. Alas, if you want to learn about Fado itself and nuances of Amalia, look elsewhere.

I never heard of Fado music before my trip to Lisbon- but after visiting Alfama I decided to visit Amalia's house. The lovely lady that showed me around worked and lived with Amalia for 40+ years and had great stories about her.

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,...More
