Casa Fernando Pessoa is a house of literature in the city of Lisbon. It is a space that is dedicated to the dissemination of Pessoa’s work and the writer’s biography, as well as a meeting point motivated by programmes relating to books and literature. The House has two libraries – a public one, specialising in Fernando Pessoa and world poetry, and Fernando Pessoa’s private library, containing the books that belonged to him. It also houses and displays the writer’s personal objects, furniture and documents.
Our aim is to bring literature and poetry closer to different audiences, acting not only in the city of Lisbon itself, but also outside of it, in order to decentralise our field of intervention and to increase our internationalisation.
Visitors to Casa Fernando Pessoa will discover all about Fernando Pessoa’s literary originality, recognisable through his creation of the main heteronyms Álvaro de Campos, Alberto Caeiro, Ricardo Reis and the semi-heteronym Bernardo Soares. Guests will learn details of the writer’s life and time, as well as the relationship he maintained with other artists from his generation.
In 2012, Casa Fernando Pessoa started to be managed by EGEAC and it is now included in this network of cultural equipment, being the only one that is exclusively dedicated to literature.
Accessible for people with reduced mobility.
