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.

  • When we went to church was closed. Too bad, because outside the Church is beautiful. It is better to inform prior to view the timetables that opens.

  • The Church is very beautiful, but we had to take a taxi to arrive. Unfortunately it was closed and we are unable to meet your interior that looks really pretty!

  • 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.
