Convento da Ordem do Carmo

The wonderful bones of Convento da Ordem do Carmo (Convent of Our Lady of Mount Carmel), which was destroyed in the Great Lisbon earthquake of 1755 and only partially rebuilt before the dissolution of the monasteries in Portugal. (The earthquake struck on All Saints’ Day, and many lives were lost in the churches that collapsed.)

It now houses Museu Arqueológico do Carmo (Carmo Archaeological Museum).
