Long Description:
[PT]
A Casa de Camilo, designação habitual da residência do escritor Camilo Castelo Branco, situa-se na freguesia de São Miguel de Seide, concelho de Vila Nova de Famalicão, distrito de Braga.
A casa foi mandada construir pelo primeiro marido de Ana Plácido, Pinheiro Alves, por volta de 1830, quando regressou do Brasil, na posse de avultada fortuna. Camilo viveu com Ana Plácido nesta casa cerca de 26 anos, do inverno de 1863 até ao suicídio em 1890.
A casa sofreu um incêndio em 17 de Março de 1915, foi reconstruída e transformada em museu camiliano, em 1922. No final da década de 40, do século passado, a casa foi objecto de profundo restauro, ficando, desde então, muito semelhante à que fora habitada pelo romancista.
Está classificada como Imóvel de Interesse Público desde 1978.
Foi considerado o melhor museu de Português, 2006.
