Have you ever read a book of José Saramago?



ENG

Have you ever read a book of José Saramago, a famous Portuguese writer? If you are not one of his funs yet, I highly recommend you to visit the foundation, know about his life, and then read one of his books.

Dense and ironic, intelligent and skeptical, tender and sarcastic, all his novels are concerned of a different point of view of history and with speaking out against the errors of modern life, always taking as their starting point the essential human qualities, solidarity, compassion and respect for others and their opinions. He became known international because of his desire to build a fairer, more human society.

The foundation is settled down in particular building called “Casa de Bicos” (Beak’s House). The house was built on top of Roman ruins which have been buried by an Earthquake. Another curiosity about this place is that José Saramago ashes are scattered in front of the foundation, next to an olive street.

“Our great task is to succeed in becoming more human” José Samarago

Schedule: Monday to Friday from 10 to 18 hs (Last entry - 17.30 hs), Saturday from 10 to 14 hs, Sunday closed.

¿Alguna vez has leído un libro de José Saramago, famoso escritor portugués? Si todavía no eres su fan, te recomiendo visites la fundación, conozcas su trayectoria, y luego leas uno de sus libros.

Denso e irónico, inteligente y escéptico, tierno y sarcástico, todas sus novelas refieren a un punto de vista diferente de ver la historia convencional y a la censura activa de los desvíos de la vida moderna, tomando siempre como referencia la esencia humana, la solidaridad, la compasión, el respeto por el otro y por sus opiniones. Se hizo conocido internacionalmente debido a su deseo de construir otra realidad más justa, más humana.

La fundación se sitúa en un edificio particular llamado “Casa de Bicos”. La casa se encuentra construida encima de unas ruinas Romanas que fueron enterradas por un terremoto. Otra curiosidad sobre este lugar es que las cenizas de José Saramago se encuentran dispersas en frente a la fundación, al costado de un Olivo.

“Nuestra gran tarea es conseguir ser más humanos” José Saramago.

Horarios: Lunes a Viernes de 10 a 18 hs. Sábado de 10 a 14 hs. Domingo Cerrado.
