Ruínas da Igreja do Carmo

The gothic ruins of this church, built upon a hill, remind the earthquake of 1755. At the only intact space works an archaeological museum that presents a small and heterogeneous collection of sarcophagus, statues, ceramic and mosaic. Outside is the Carmo Fountain decorated with four beautiful dolphins.
