Igreja do Carmo

Planned by the architect José de Figueiredo Seixas, this church, built between 1756 and 1768, clearly differs, by its exuberance and majesty, from the neighbour Carmelitas Church. We point out the grand azulejos panel that covers the lateral façade, by the Italian Silvestre Silvestri.
