Igreja do Carmo, Porto

Church
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. Plan to visit Igreja do Carmo during your Porto vacation using our convenient Porto family vacation planner.

  • Igreja Dos Carmelitas and this Cathedral is a very narrow one, leave the building attached to the Cathedral. Why not Abbey right next to the Cathedral and another reason is that I do not know if here is not the building and found the walls are decorated with beautiful ajulreju. Porto can easily find wherever you are thanks to ajulreju it is very enjoyable to stroll the streets of Porto.

  • If you look carefully you will see two churches instead of one. On your left, the Carmelitas Church was part of a former 17th century convent. On your right, the Carmo Church, a great example of baroque architecture, later built in the 18th century. Both churches are classified as national monuments.
  • Another church with a beautiful tiled facade but on the side facing the fountain of lions. It's definitely something you cannot miss when walking past but difficult to capture in its full glory.
  • A igreja mais bonita do Porto...

On your right, the Carmo Church, a great example of baroque architecture, later built in the 18th century. The east side wall is covered in "azulejos", a form of Portuguese painted tin-glazed ceramic tilework. Both churches are classified as national monuments.
  • This is a lovely ornate Church . We lit candles and sat quietly for a moment of peace in a busy day.
