Iglesia de las Carmelitas, Montevideo

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.

  • Copy of a church in Europe, is cute, but like everything in Uruguay, smaller, more slow, less cute... unless Suarez clear.

  • Beautiful, but was closed...
  • I attended a concert. It was so full that the photo does not do justice to the Church. The Symphonic Orchestra of Montevideo, performing Arias and overtures of Rossini. Beautiful show! In a place with good acoustics.

  • The most beautiful church of Montevideo! The site was closed when we arrived, we had to ring the Bell, the responsible left us visit, despite being unkind. Inside the Church is quite simple, so if you do not have great interest, meet on the inside is not need! But outside is worth the stop!
