Carmo Convent

Lisbon, Portugal
4.5 / 10
The medieval monastery of the XIII-XIV centuries., Built by the aristocrat Nuno Alvaresh Pereira for the brothers of the Order of the Carmelites. This noble knight sold all his belongings and cut his hair as a monk. In 1755, the building was destroyed by an earthquake and many priceless relics were lost. After restoration, the complex was used as a warehouse and barracks; later, an archaeological museum was placed in the walls.
