Igreja do Carmo, Porto

4.5
Explore the Gothic ruins and archeological museum at Igreja do Carmo, a medieval convent toppled by the 1755 earthquake. While the roof collapsed, the walls and the arches still stand, leaving the skeleton of the building for visitors to explore. The church now houses the Carmo Archeological Museum, where you can see 14th-century tombs, fountains, windows, sepulchral monuments, and other artifacts from Portuguese history. Also look out for the mummies from ancient South America. By using our Porto online day trip planner , you can arrange your visit to Igreja do Carmo and other attractions in Porto.

  • Churches 'twins', this is my favorite with his blue wall of tiles dating from 1912. It was built in a baroque style, like the nearby Clerigos Tower

  • If there is a church to visit, it is this. There are 2 adjoining churches, it is the right one, easily recognizable by its baroque/rococo façade covered with blue faience representative of religious scenes, including on the side. Inside, you can admire many Golden sculptures (from the walls to the ceiling), the altar, the statuary and several paintings. Attention to the timing of your visit, because there are a lot of people.

  • Beautiful structure, and amazing tiles. We were there around 12 and it wasn't to busy. Very close to other attractions and should visit if around the area.
  • Absolutely incredible classic tile on the outside. Inside, stunning as well.
  • Beautiful inside and out, highly ornamental. You'll find a very vivid body of Jesus inside. Beautiful tiles on the side facade. Free to enter.
  • Amazingly structured church with a classic touch of decorative tiles on the side!
  • Wall fasade with azulejo is amazing!
