  • The former convent of San Antonio known as the Carmo Church is a beautiful Church located at the entrance of Olinda and could be better assisted, it is surrounded by garbage and weeds. I don't understand how a landmark of a city with the name of OLINDA, can be treated in this way i.e. untreated. Is a total neglect with a more beautiful city >

  • Na CHURCH. Ms. DO CARMO Tuesday to Saturday from 9 am to 17 PM is the first Church of the Discalced Carmelites in Latin America. Built in principle as Chapel of Santo António and São Gonzalo in 1580, with the arrival of the order of the Carmelites began expanding. In 1630, during the Dutch occupation the great campaign that had was cast by them to make weapons and demanded the eviction of the Church. The interior reconstruction works began in 1704 and 1720 he ends it with a Baroque style. The side tower was completed in 1726. The main altar has three niches. In the central is the image of the Virgin and the founders of the order sides: Saint Elias and San Eliseo. The choir has beautiful chairs and there are several oil-on-wood paintings made by the monks. On the first floor runs the Cultural Heritage Institute.

  • This church is for sure very important throughout history of Olinda, Recife and also from Brazil. Very nice, a must but should be more careful and conserved.

  • Um dos lugares mais bonitos para se visitar em recife. O único ponto negativo é o horario que poderia ficar disponível mais vezes.
  • A mais bela!
  • Lindo local. Parada obrigatória para os mochileiros de plantão! Falta apenas as autoridades cuidarem mais de tal bem histórico.
