Convento do Carmo

Haunting memorial to the great earthquake

Absolutely Wonderful

Why You'll Love It

This convent serves as a memorial to the great earthquake of 1755. All that remains are the beautiful arches of the convent, and it’s a bit eerie wandering about. The sacristy is now a museum, which, while small, is definitely worth checking out.

Be sure to wander around the neighborhood afterward.
