The former convent, Convento da Ordem do Carmo, and it’s church were severely damaged during the earthquake in Lisbon in 1755. Until this day, the ruins of the Igreja do Carmo, are the biggest proof of the earthquake. Nowadays, it’s an archeological museum which you can visit for only €2,50 if you’re a student. In my opinion, you don’t have to go there to see the ‘archeological treasures’, but just to enjoy these breathtaking ruins.
