Carmo Convent, Lisbon

Carmo Convent, Lisbon

The medieval convent is one of the few remaining ruins from the devastating earthquake that destroyed Lisbon in 1,755. The gothic church is now a museum located in the heart of the vibrant Bairo Alto district. I didn’t know what to expect behind the massive wooden door leading you into the museum. I found a place of great peacefulness and happened to spend a couple of hours sitting on the steps, relaxing.
