You cannot be there if you don't know the author. Why would you? Casa Pessoa is ahead of everything else a cultural centre that hosts education projects, small live concerts etc. Is meant, as I am sure Pessoa would have asked, to stimulate the brain and encourage youth to study.
I met one of the most well prepared guides of the world. He shared a lot about Pessoa's life and work and was very passionate about it. (The type with a spark in the eye) I learned, as I planned to, that Pessoa was a lonesome litterate who valued writing and reading above anything else in life, so much that he refused to marry his darling, Ofelia, claiming that would detour him from his destiny. I do not agree with his approach, even though I cannot help admiring such devotion. Also, being an active critic of Salazar, he was unable to get a steady well-paid job with the government. He had good revenues though as a freelance translator.
