“Be plural like the Universe.” – Fernando Pessoa
Opened in 1993, the cultural centre Casa Fernando Pessoa was conceived by the Lisbon City Council as a tribute to the poet and his memory in the city where he lived and at Campo de Ourique – a traditionally neighbourhood linked to artists and intellectuals, where he spent his last fifteen years.
Casa Fernando Pessoa has an auditorium, a garden, exhibition rooms, works of art, a library dedicated to poetry, and also an area with furniture and personal items of the poet. The cultural center also provides to its visitors poetry readings, meetings with authors, concerts and theatre, lectures, workshops, art exhibitions, book launches and children’s ateliers in a calendar of diversified events.
Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. – Free Admission every day
