Casa Museu de Amália Rodrigues information
A pilgrimage site for fado fans, Casa Museu de Amália Rodrigues is where the Rainha do Fado (Queen of Fado) Amália Rodrigues lived; note graffiti along the street announcing it as Rua Amália. Short tours take in portraits, glittering costumes and crackly recordings of her performances.
Born in Lisbon in 1920, the diva popularised the genre with her heartbreaking trills and poetic soul.
