Quite an interesting visit. Unfortunately, there was a school group visiting the house and since the place is rather small, we couldn't enjoy the visit in detail. There's a cafe at the back of the house so we opted to spend some time there while the students finished their visit.
After seeing the Saramago Museum, I hung on to my ticket to get a discount to see Casa Fernando Pessoa, Portugal's great modern poet. I have to admit this was a little more challenging to find. It was off the usual tourist path (northwest of Cathedral Estrela) needed the help of some locals. But once you find the street, the... 更多
I should open this review by saying I knew nothing about Fernando Pessoa before a recent holiday in Lisbon, and this house served to pique my interest and encourage me to find out more about him.

You will love this cultural center! It is not a museum, per se. But an archive and interpretation of Pessoa's contributions to Portugal and literature. I highly recommend the guided tour which is performed by passionate guides who live and breath Pessoa scholarship. The bookstore and library are amazing resources also.
