About Carmo Convent

Perched atop one of Lisbon’s seven hills, the Carmo Convent stands as a solemn reminder of the city's resilience. This Gothic relic, with its open-air ruins reaching towards the sky, tells a tale of beauty born from destruction. 

Stripped of its roof by the devastating earthquake of 1755, today the convent is a breathtaking skeleton of arches and columns, hosting the sky as its ceiling. It's a place where history is etched into every stone and echo, inviting visitors to wander through its aisles in quiet reflection, amidst whispers of the past and panoramic views that sweep across Lisbon’s bustling present.
