Very nice church. Do not be misleaded by the queue - if you do not want to visit th tower and see the exhibition - you can go and visit church with no queue/ticket. Just step in and go left.

The outside of this church is really interesting, since it is covered with painted tiles depicting different scenes. The inside was quite plain, except for the alter, which was gorgeous! I recommend taking a look and some pics of the outside, a quick peek at...More

I had not even realised this was two side-by-side churches till I read some of the reviews. No worries. there is enough gold and over-the-top Rococo decorative work in the one side I saw to more than make up for the disappointment at missing the...More

The climb up the tower isn't too hard and the view from the top is breath-taking. The church is lovely too- make sure you go up as far as the choir.

What looks like just one big church is actually two connected by what is one of the world's narrowest houses - just 1 meter wide! To the right is Carmo Church, built in the 18th century. Outside it is covered in blue and white tile...More

This church is walking distance from the Clerigos Tower and the Library and can be accessed from a big square. Do not miss both entrances as it can get a bit confusing. No payment at either of them and both have truly gorgeous interiors.

I walked in and straight out. It is a church for VERY religious people.It was too heavy for me.It is next to the peaceful Carmelite Church. Look for the small 'house' separating the two churches.

This is another beautiful example of the Portuguese use of decorative tiles and here you have a very large area of it. After admiring it, take a peak inside at the extravagant interior, as usual in most of the churches, which must be appreciated for...More

The tiles on the outside of the Carmo are excellent, although it is hard to get a good picture because of the street clutter. The interior of the church is quite impressive with the use of blue in many of the naves.
