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.

    If you haven't seen yet churches covered with azulejos will amaze you. If you have already seen I remember even with the usual Golden spiral columns of the chapels. Passing, it's worth a quick visit

    If m is any doubt the most beautiful church of the city, with your history of 2 churches in 1, worth visiting.

    7/16 (Sunday) visits. Viewed from the front and next to the Igreja dos Carmelitas Church. Like many people in both church and one church. While is seems to be Church in Portugal is well decorated, Azulejos on the side is great.

  • Mosaic on the walls adds charm to the building. It's great place to take interesting photos.
  • Lots of azulejos outside, inside in both churches rich and beautiful interior. Between churches is narrow house, since law at that times required churches to be separated. In opposit there are some caffes as well as tram stop.
  • Beautiful church with a ton of gold! One of many beautiful churches in Porto. Free entrance! And it has a cool tile display on the outside of the building.
  • Stunning. So easy to forget how beautiful it is when you live here...
  • Make sure to take a look at the inside. Wow.

Where to stay in Porto

Portugal's second city offers a healthy variety and quantity of accessible accommodations. The historical city center on the northern bank of the River Douro teems with hotel options, ranging from budget-friendly hostels and guesthouses, which often have shared rooms, to upscale, luxury hotels housed in larger buildings and packed with amenities. All of these options place you conveniently close to the town's main sights, including churches, historical squares, and more. On top of that, many hotels on the northern bank boast good views from their hilltop vantage points. If you want to save big on cost, it's worth considering a more low-key hostel or small hotel on the less-popular southern bank.
