Iglesia de las Carmelitas, Montevideo

(4.7/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
Admire the Neo-Gothic architecture of Iglesia de las Carmelitas, an impressive 20th-century place of worship. Constructed between 1929 and 1954 and designed by architects Guillermo Armas and Alberico Isola, the church takes clear influence from across the Atlantic, with Notre Dame of Paris its obvious inspiration. Inside, impressive woodcarvings and a large nave continue the visual impression and artistry of the Gothic exterior. See Iglesia de las Carmelitas and all Montevideo has to offer by arranging your trip with our Montevideo tourist route planner.

  • In addition to the beauty of the Valley Church walk in the meadow and see the houses around. Super quiet region. Recommend.

  • It is one of the few examples of Gothic style in Montevideo. For those who are not familiar with this style, it is worth knowing it.

  • Beautiful work religious of architecture Gothic. Dating back to 1929 (so it is strange that there is a coat of arms of the Republic in its facade, since the secularization in Uruguay began years earlier). Inside it is quite typical, but outside it is of admirable beauty. There is that search it, because is located on a street little busy, but in a neighborhood with architectures delicious and very varied.

  • Definitely one of the churches most beautiful and oldest in the city, is totally worth visiting it. Tip for cholulos, the actor Keanu Reeves was here to celebrate the wedding of his friend the director Carl Rinsch with a Uruguayan.

  • Beautiful temple close to the standing neo-Gothic style. It is widely used for marriages but it also has a very active parish community.
