Casa dos Bicos, one of the branches of the Museum of Lisbon, is currently celebrating the 500th anniversary of its construction, which was ordered by Brás de Albuquerque shortly after 1521, becoming the most important Renaissance house in Lisbon.

Many stories surround this house from before and after its construction, from the archaeological site that can be visited on the ground floor to the radical restoration that the building underwent. Ana Paula Antunes, investigator of the Museum of Lisbon, will reveal us many of the histories of this noble house.
