About this spot
The skeletal remains of Convento do Carmo are Lisbon’s most striking example of the devastation caused by the 1755 earthquake. At the time of earthquake, the building was one of the largest churches in the Portuguese capital. The roof of the church collapsed causing significant damage to the church building and its comprehensive library. Set overlooking the city the evocative ruins are now a museum.
