Lisbon- Carmo- Detail

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

La chiesa del Carmo, insieme all'annesso convento, furono costruiti a partire dal 1389 per essere conclusi nel 1423. Per circa 300 anni la chiesa rivaleggiò con La Seu (la cattedrale) per il titolo di chiesa più bella e importante di Lisbona. Nel 1755 il terremoto e l'incendio che ne seguì, distrussereo buona parte di Lisbona, compreso il complesso dei carmelitani. Rimase in piedi solo quello che si vede oggi, con le tre ampie navate ormai senza copertura, che lasciano guardare il cielo attraverso gli archi sospesi.


The Carmo Convent is a historical building in Lisbon, Portugal. The mediaeval convent was ruined in the 1755 Lisbon Earthquake, and the ruins of its Gothic church (the Carmo Church or Igreja do Carmo) are the main trace of the great earthquake still visible in the city.

The Carmo Convent is located in the Chiado neighbourhood, on a hill overlooking the Rossio square and facing the Lisbon Castle hill. It is located in front of a quiet square (Carmo Square), very close to the Santa Justa Lift.

Nowadays the ruined Carmo Church is used as an archaeological museum (the Museu Arqueológico do Carmo or Carmo Archaeological Museum).

Très gentil,Guy, quand il y a un endroit pareil ce n'est pas difficile. Merci de ta visite et commentaire, salutation,Daniela

J'admire la hardiesse de ton cadrage Daniela. Ces arches ont résisté au séisme et c'est aussi une page d'histoire.
