  • The opening hours are incorrect. The museum is closed for renovation. One person mentioned they thought it would reopen in October of 2019.
  • Probably one of the best poets of the world, I love him! And I also love Alberto Caeiro, Álvaro de Campos and Ricardo Reis, if you know what I mean! As a translator, Pessoa had his own method: „a poem is an intellectualized impression, an idea made emotion, communicated by others by means of a rhythm. This rhythm is double in one, like the concave and convex aspects of the same arc: it is made up of a verbal or musical rhythm and of a visual or image rhythm which concurs inwardly with it... The translation of a poem should therefore conform absolutely a) to the idea or emotion which constitutes the poem, b) to the verbal rhythm in which that idea or emotion is expressed; it should conform relatively to the inner or visual rhythm, keeping to the images themselves when it can, but keeping always to the type of image... A fabulous author! The Portuguese have to be proud because of Fernando Pessoa, wow!
