Iglesia de las Carmelitas, Montevideo

4.6
#3 of 18 in Historic Sites in Montevideo
Church Landmark
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.

  • Away from the Center. I was on time that reported on mass and was closed. The place had a few beggars a little frightening (not seen in other locations in Montevideo) and so we ended up not coming down from the car. He was elected by the family as stolen from the trip!

  • The Church is beautiful on the outside, has a unique whole architecture. We'd love to meet her inside but unfortunately was closed. But thanks for the beautiful architecture.

  • It is a beautiful church in the meadow area. In Gothic style, linda to visit. It is not within the circuit of the old city. Therefore to go takes its time.

  • Linda Church both inside as outside. How is Prado Park, is worth a visit after touring there. Come to mass because there's not good lighting in the streets at night to be able to enjoy it.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
