The MONOCLE Travel Guide to Lisbon
Em Setembro de 2017 a revista MONOCLE lançou na sua serie de guias de viagem, o guia de Lisboa onde referiu a Casa-Museu na secção de Cultura / Museus e Galerias dizendo:
“9. Casa-Museu Medeiros e Almeida, Liberdade e Castilho
Despite being located in the city centre, the Casa-Museu Medeiros e Almeida is a quieter choice when it comes to museums. The decorative arts collection of Portuguese businessman António de Medeiros e Almeida is displayed across 26 galleries in his former home, which was extended in 1968 and converted into a private museum in 1973. As you stroll through the rooms take note of the difference between the old and new wings:the former was lived in whereas the latter, which is more lavish, was kitted out specially for the museum.
The 2,000-piece collection includes everything from pocket watches to paintings and dates from the 2nd to the 20th century.
Highlights include a Chinese porcelain bidet that belonged to the French royal family.”
Para celebrar o novo guia a MONOCLE preparou um pequeno filme sobre Lisboa disponível em: https://monocle.com/film/entertaining/lisbon-the-monocle-travel-guide/
Lisbon: The Monocle Travel Guide
Lisbon may be one of Europe’s oldest cities but it’s far from staid, with massive murals, azulejo-covered townhouses and cutting-edge museums. Allow us to guide you through this eminently liveable (did we mention there are sandy beaches?) and fast-changing city. Published by Gestalten, The Monocle Travel Guide to Lisbon is available now at The Monocle Shop.
