Great collection of Saramago memorabilia plus really interesting selection of biographical documentaries on 4thfloor. The items in the shop were a bit expensive. All I could afford was a fridge magnet. Other than that, it's a must. Saramago was a great thinker and writer.
We went, since I have read some of his writings translated into Spanish. My partner does not speak Spanish, and we do not know Portuguese. We were told everything "was translated". We paid and went upstairs to find out the translated material were the books, but the museum part was all in Portuguese. It was very disappointing. I tried as... 更多
This was the home of the Nobel-prize winning writer and activist Jose Saramago. Now it is the home of a cultural foundation and a museum featuring Saramago's books, memorabilia, plus videos of interviews and speeches. The ground floor is an archaeological site, displaying Roman ruins and explaining the history of the site. I am a big Saramago fan and loved... 更多
I am a big Jose Saramago fan so the chance to see a museum about the famous writer was a must see. Even better was the house was not a far walk from the Commercial plaza (central waterfront area).

Sadly we found it closed. In any case I mostly wanted to see the peculiar building but it would have been nice to see the... 更多
I grew up in Lisboa and was always intrigued by this building. It wasn't until this summer, however, that I finally stepped inside. Even though I'm a huge Saramago fan, I didn't visit the exhibition due to time restrictions. The ground floor display (free entrance) on Roman ruins and on Lisboa 's history was enough to keep us entertained. Truth... 更多
I am a massive reader and booknerd and dragged my family to this beautiful building formally Casa Dos Bicos now housing the Jose Saramago foundation. See a huge collection of the authors works in many languages and his Nobel prize medal and library and a bookshop. Mainly in Portuguese but some information in English too. A beautiful museum and a... 更多
The Foundation is run as a non-profit museum and has a bookshop and exhibitions on several floors, including Roman ruins and artefacts, and is dedicated to Portugal's famous writer. You can even see Saramago's Nobel Prize medal. Very well worth supporting this charitable foundation which depends on its entrance fees to keep going - great value for money.
