  • Igreja dos Carmelitas-dates back to the 18th century in Baroque-Rococo style. The most interesting fact is that Carmo Church is twinned with the Carmelite Church, separated by a very narrow house...

  • It's great, beautiful and sacred Catholic Church. And the place is good to visit easily.
  • Igreja dos Carmelitas or Igreja dos Carmelitas Descalços is located in the parish of Vitória. Construction began in 1616 and was completed in 1628. The decoration of the interior was ready by 1650. It is an absolutely stunning parish and if you’re ever in Porto definitely visit it, you’ll be amazed at both the interior and exterior of the place.
  • When standing in front you'd think you're looking at a single Church. However, there're two of them - one by another, a very unusual site. Igreja dos Carmelitas is the left one, little bit smaller, but more lavishly decorated in Baroque and Rococo. Entrance is free, and for a small fee you can tour both Churches as well the "Hidden house" between them.
  • Nice and simple church conjoined woth another one which makes it very cool.
  • So historic and beautiful Church in heart of Old town Porto
