27 reviews of Carmo Convent

A church with a celestial ceiling

Excellent

In the heart of Lisbon are the Carmo Ruins with a museum as well as the archaeological restorations. It's religious architecture, a convent that suffered the ravages of an earthquake and a flood that changed the city. The result was that this Gothic church was under the open sky. The approximate cost of the entrance is 3.00 €, but in Lisbon museums are free on Sundays.

Convento do Carmo Church

Carmo Church was destroyed by the famous earthquake. It is one of the most unusual monuments in this city and the ruins can clearly be seen from Rossio Station and from the bridge that is just off the elevator do Carmo. These are the ruins of the only pure Gothic church in Lisbon. Along with the Cathedral it is one of the few remaining medieval relics in the Portuguese capital. After the earthquake it was never rebuilt.
