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.

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