Iglesia de las Carmelitas, Montevideo
(4.7/5 based on 400+ 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.

  • Beautiful Gothic-style church, with a façade all crafted with many details and interior "cleam", very clear, all white, a few images and a beautiful altar. Imspira peace, lightness and meditation at the time happened a mass and the faithful were engrossed and in prayer.

  • Surely the comparison is exaggerated, but the truth is that this church is beautiful where was her look, its architecture, its stained glass windows. I am one more that recommended not to know.

  • Beautiful gothic church, worthy of being visited by all who admire this type of architecture. Nestled in the Montevideo Prado and within walking distance of the Presidential Palace (Suarez and Reyes) and the famous Prado.Su Rural interior reflects moments of a lavish and elegant Montevideo. The stained glass are worthy of admiration. Open enconrtara can be the days of mass or weddings. His visit is highly recommended.

  • 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.
